My Students

Our primary students are energetic learners who have a thirst for learning. Living in an urban neighborhood on the far south side of Chicago our students have shown that they can face any challenges that come their way! As teachers, we want to also show them that with learning can also come fun!

The experiences most of our students receive outside the classroom are limited or none at all.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Luckily, from the minute they walk into our school we focus on their future and make sure we meet all their needs. All the teachers try their best to be creative and positive hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic achievement.

My Project

I love to have a class that feels comfy and cozy for my students. I want to them to complete their work in a manner that they feel works best for them. That means I need to give them many choices. I have begun to incorporate flexible seating within my class and this Nugget will be another great option. With the four separate foam pieces there are multiple ways it can be repositioned. This furniture can be used by many students at once. It is also durable for a large class of students. They will feel comfy and cozy but still be able to get their work done!
