My Students

My students are fighters. They are brothers and sisters. They are readers and writers. They are artists and authors. They are musicians and dancers. They are athletes and book worms. They are learners and teachers. They are powerful and their words matter.

Every day I have them yell at the top of their lungs, " I am smart, I am capable!" In hopes that one day they believe it.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds with life experiences that they bring into the classroom to make our learning wholesome and meaningful. My students know that we are a family, and what we do in our classroom will affect their lives when they leave its doors.

My Project

We have 3 classrooms to create flexible seating for. We are platooning partners, meaning we each have our subject area of expertise and the students move from classroom to classroom. The intention is to make sure we each perfect our craft so we can best support our students academically. While we each have different teaching styles, we have the same goal: To make our classroom environments the most effective we can to support our students.

Learning starts with creating a warm, caring, supportive classroom environment.

When students are comfortable and feel safe, they are more likely to be engaged in their learning. The variety of seating will not only help our fidgety students or students with ADHD/ADD, but it will also help each student stay active and engaged during instruction. These seats will help our students focus, have fun during school, and know that their teachers care about their success. They will help us create the classroom environments that we are all striving for.
