My Students

I work in an urban school where so many of the students are below the poverty line. All students receive a free lunch each day. Despite their situations, my students are resilient, courageous, and strong.

My students need structure and a positive environment to help them learn best.

With a supportive staff and focus on our school's core values, they are thriving. They are learning to develop skills that will help them be successful now as well as throughout their lives. Please help me help them grow and maintain their success.

My Project

These wobble stools would be used every day by the students in my classroom. The majority of my students are very active and have a difficult time focusing their attention. Students will be given instruction in small groups during reading daily. During this tie, students need to be highly engaged in the curriculum instead of focusing on their wiggly bodies. These chairs will help to facilitate small group lessons where students are actively engaged and learning at their level.

Giving students engaging small group instruction is the most effective way to see student growth.

I have a wide range of abilities in my classroom so being able to differentiate the instruction students are receiving is extremely important. These wobble stools will help my students to achieve academic growth this year.
