My Students

Warning! Don't stand in the doorway when the first bell rings. You will be ran over by a group of kind and energetic first graders ready to take on the new days learning objectives.

I am the luckiest teacher around.

Everyday I get to witness a group of enthusiastic and eager first graders taking on new challenges and accomplishing goals. They absolutely love to learn and nearly knock the classroom door when the first bell rings. In our Title One school, our teachers set high expectations and provide differentiated instruction in a loving and caring way. We work very hard to ensure that every child leaves successful.

My Project

First grade students spend many minutes a day sitting in the gathering area sharing learning strategies with their classmates. Imagine how hard sitting and listening is to a child who has difficulty focusing. He/she might miss classroom discussions and sharing opportunities as they are just trying to find the best way to sit. Then students transition to their work spots. Again, taking several minutes to just get in a comfy spot when they realize that they are all ready far behind. Why even bother now is often a phrase that these students share. These three Wobble Chairs and two Movin' Sit Juniors would allow my students that need it the extra support to focus and share. They would instantly feel as if they truly belonged.

Donations to my classroom would allow all students in my classroom the opportunities to contribute to class discussions and be able to focus.

No student in my class would feel left out and unsuccessful. They could truly live up to their full potentials.
