My Students

My fourth grade students make me proud to be their teacher. My students are creative, and have such an amazing work ethic that brings me such joy and inspires me to work harder to provide them with the best education possible. My classroom is made up of a diverse group of academic levels, as I teach in an inclusion classroom.

It is my obligation, as a teacher, to provide my students with a meaningful education.

My students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom and I only hope when they are with me, I can provide them all the tools they need to be successful.

My Project

Flexible seating leads to more focused learners and gives a more positive outlook on school assignments and class in general. These materials will impact students in a positive way. With this flexible seating, students have the ability to move comfortably without drawing attention to themselves or affecting their classroom environment.

My students will love being able to choose seating options as they work in our classroom.

I want to provide them with a variety of seating choices so they have an option to choose what works best for them as an individual student. Every student learns differently, and this is a great way to tap into those different learning styles.
