My Students

Our sweet students come from diverse backgrounds and bring a large array of experiences to our classrooms and school. One thing they all have in common is using their imaginations and creating a happy world within our walls.

Daily, our students overcome a variety of basic challenges - getting breakfast, making it to school, having homework completed.

Our school is a Title I urban school with the most diverse population in our district. Over 80% of our students qualify to receive free or reduced-price lunch. School becomes a safe haven for these scholars - where expectations are the same every day, and their basic needs are met. While they come to school to learn, they thrive when they are given the opportunity to utilize a variety of resources to make learning real and fun. This is what keeps them coming back and keeps them hooked into learning the rigorous academic standards.

My Project

My students love to learn and enjoy the flexibility of choosing an area of our classroom that works best for them. By providing additional comfy seating in our classroom, students will have more opportunities to find a best for them spot to learn and work hard to achieve their learning goals.

Each day students spend time independently practicing reading skills, working together in small groups on math and literacy skills and learn through purposeful play.

By providing them with alternative seating and the flexibility to move around, they learn to take control of their learning and to find a place that helps them to put forth their best effort.
