My Students

My students are imaginative and creative. They work hard and take pride in their education. Their families work hard to provide what they need to succeed and get the most out of their time at school. My students always deserve to get the best out of their educational experience.

My passion is to encourage and empower all of my students to reach their greatest potential.

I strive to provide lessons, activities, and the environment to help them grow to their greatest potential.

My Project

My students love the flexible seating options in my classroom! Not only do they enjoy choosing the right seating option for themselves, but many of them enjoy the options that allow for some movement while they learn. For some of these students, being able to move is essential to staying focused and engaged.

A Poly & Bark rocking chair and SueSport balance discs are seating options that would allow my students to move and exercise their muscles while still staying focused on our lessons.

Since I've starting using flexible seating options, I have noticed a decrease in distracting behavior. I believe that when students are able to move and exercise while they learn, they are more engaged and productive learners.
