My Students

My students are amazing! They are hardworking, dedicated, and excited to try new things. They love our writing class and always aspire to do their best. My goal is to make our classroom a comfortable, calm, and productive work space. Some students in my class are sensitive to the bright fluorescent lights in our class.

Students are more engaged and their writing is superior when they feel relaxed.

In our class, we strive to make learning an enjoyable experience and to help every child reach their full learning potential.

My Project

The students love when we can turn off the fluorescent lights and reduce the glare. We turn on table lamps, string lights and desk lamps. Unfortunately, some days it is too dark to turn all the lights off. Applying the fluorescent light filters will allow them to enjoy a calmer environment when the lights are on.

Using alternative lights, lamps, essential oil diffusers and calming music all help to create a peaceful writing environment.

The diffuser we have works well. Ordering more oils to use in our existing diffuser will allow us to continue to enjoy this feature in our classroom.
