My students need locking table casters for flexible seating choices and blackout curtains for viewing videos and using educational apps on the big screen.
I am super excited and energized about my new teaching assignment: STEM! Project-based, filled with choices, group work, problem-solving, and so much more! I will be using my real world experiences in the business and construction worlds to bring credibility to our projects, as well as tons of ideas students and their parents are likely to encounter now and in the future.
One of my favorite movie quotes is from Fred Claus: "There are no naughty kids, Nick.
They're all good kids. But some of them are scared. And some of them don't feel listened to. Some of them had some pretty tough breaks too. But every kid deserves a present on Christmas." That is exactly how I feel about my students. I'd like to add to this quote: some of them cannot see as well as others when we are viewing content on the big screen, and cannot safely and quickly move to a better viewing position. They all deserve the best classroom environment and my best possible teaching. Nothing less.
After adding a 110" screen to our classroom last year to ensure all students have a clear view of content being viewed or interacted with, we learned that the light from the projector dissipated enough to make the screen content difficult to see, especially on bright days. The existing classroom blinds are ineffective at creating the dark viewing environment needed to make my super large screen more effective for learning. In addition, as a STEM classroom, we have the need for more flexible seating. Locking casters on the existing tables would be a tremendous gift, making it easy and safe for students to regroup with minimal disruption to classroom learning.
