My Students

My students attend a K-8 public school. The goal of the school is to challenge students with a rigorous academic program in a technology rich environment while fostering communication, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.

My third graders strive to be 21st century learners and utilize technology in all aspects of learning from writing to math.

The students read, create, and share books utilizing the 21st century addition of software programs created to enhance learning. They also work hard everyday to be positive members of society.

My Project

The turtle rug and and denim kid chairs will give students areas to get cozy and read books. They can sit comfortably and write stories. The flexible seating will allow more focus and concentration. Students in small groups will be excited to come to the table.

Students will want to come to school to learn!

A warm classroom invites students to open their minds and hearts to learning. The classroom furniture will offer opportunities for students to be able to relax in their learning environment. I know that the materials provided will enhance the education of my wonderful third graders!
