My Students

My students come from a variety of cultural and economic backgrounds. They are interested in peer collaborations and classroom roles and they continually exceed goals that they set for themselves.

My class is comprised of a multitude of learners ranging from GT students to Identified students, being that I teach in an inclusion setting, it is challenging to make the most of the learning environment for all learners.

My students need an environment that encourages them to explore and grow.

My Project

We all have difficulty sitting still for very long. In our class, we make sure we get some moving and stretching into our day. My students could benefit tremendously from having a few seating options to accommodate their learning.

Being able to adjust their seating options would grant my students the ability to adjust their LEARNING options.

They would be able to recline on the bean bag chairs in our classroom library and for those who need to wiggle, the balance ball would rock!

These seating options would help our classroom break out of the "one size fits all" mold.
