My Students

My students are motivated to learn. They enjoy activities that are hands-on, strategy-based and educational. I love finding new and innovative ways to teach and meet their learning needs.

Not all of my students have a home life where education is valued; I strive to show them that education is so very important and how it will affect them for the rest of their lives.

Not all students learn best sitting in a chair at a desk. I think giving the students an option for seating will help meet some of their learning needs.

My Project

Some students learn best by standing, some learn best in alternate seating options rather than a desk and chair. I like to support all types of learners in my classroom, and giving them a seating option will help them concentrate and learn if they are comfortable.

The ball chairs help build core strength and allow students the ability to move while remaining seated.

The floor seats allow the students to sit in various locations around the room and still complete their work. Please consider donating to help my students with their seating options and give them the opportunity to be comfortable while learning!
