My classroom is a place where I like students to be engaged and where students are eager to learn. I work hard to create a classroom environment that makes students feel safe and somewhere they want to go every day. I encourage all my students to be independent learners and to have a thirst for knowledge.
My school is located in a small, rural town just south of Ithaca, NY.
The population of the high school is just over 200 students. My students have various ranges of abilities, but all are caring individuals who are trying to better themselves. I want to provide them with a comfortable space where they can learn and achieve their goals.
Currently, my students sit in desks that have attached chairs. This type of seating does not lend itself well to group work and comfortable reading. I know my students would thrive by having different seating options available. Having some comfortable chairs would allow students to build their love for reading.
Recently my students have gotten tables in my classroom to work at and to be able to work together. They now need comfortable chairs to sit at the tables with. We also need chairs that can easily be moved around to allow for collaborative learning.
Students spend a lot of time in my classroom reading various works of literature and the futon will allow for students to have a comfortable spot to enjoy and focus on their reading.
It will also allow for students to be able to sit next to each other and complete projects. Students are definitely engaged in learning when they are in comfortable seats.
