My Students

My students are curious, active, smart and creative. The future looks good for us! I teach English and Journalism in classes that span all grade levels- 9th,10th,11th and 12th. We write the school newspaper "The Lion's Roar" and showcase that diversity within our school and community.

My students are busy, active learners that thrive on movement.

They believe in themselves , and full of empowerment, are doing it NOW. This generation learns by doing and is not afraid to jump right in and start "being" a writer, a journalist, a broadcaster, etc...whatever they can imagine themselves doing!

My Project

My students sit in four classes a day for 90 minutes at a time. I do create transitions for them to allow for movement in the class but this year I would like to incorporate some flexible seating options. I purchased a Learniture Wobble Stool for my class of 30+ students and I love how it allows for movement while sitting at their desk, without distractions to other students. I would LOVE to add 3 more of these stools to my classroom environment, one at each of the four tables.

Movement is an effective cognitive strategy that promotes mental clarity by increasing blood flow to the brain, making movement vital to both learning and health.

As a student, I was a fidgeter, with high energy, hard pressed to sit still. I recognized this in all my classes with students who need constant movement. A Learniture Wobble stool will allow for that energy outlet without distractions to other students. Please consider donating to my project so that I can use these stools in my classroom for years to come!
