My Students

My students are busy and curious about the world. Spending time getting to know them prior to the end of the school year, gave me some insight and initiated my excitement at getting to help this group learn and become a community.

Every child is unique and needs something a little different.

I work at a Title 1 school, and our students often lack access to the newest materials available for learning. My students come to school with the challenges of poverty, and I do my best to provide the support they need to thrive. We do not accept excuses at my school, and we work with families to overcome obstacles that get in the way of student success.

My classroom is a space that is welcoming and full of hope! Being comfortable in class leads to greater focus and stamina. I have, and will continue, to do whatever it takes to meet my students’ learning needs.

My Project

Second graders are active and need to stay engaged in learning by having movement opportunities while working in class. I try to get my students up and moving frequently, but I just feel like they need more. Having Wobble seats and cushions to sit upon may be just what more active learners need. The cushions are even more adaptable because they can be used on the floor.

Movement stimulates the brain, and using Wobble chairs and Wobble cushions will be one more way to provide movement.

Knowing how movement can help children focus, I believe the Wobble chairs and cushions will help those students struggling with work stamina.
