My Students

My students are 21st century citizens of the world. They don't come to school each day to answer multiple choice questions or copy sentences from the board they come to solve problems, create beauty, collaborate and develop innovative ideas. My students seek to make our world a better place through gathering knowledge and sharing knowledge. They come to school with enthusiasm and put their critical thinking skills to work for themselves and each other every day. Together we are all working to a big, bright, beautiful tomorrow.

My Project

We need stools and risers for our flexible seating room. Flexible seating means students have choice and options for sitting while learning. Students find the seating option that is best for their learning. This year I have tried a variety of seating options, pillows, hammock chairs, crates, stools and more.

By far my students favorite seating options sitting on stools at the raised table.

I think they like the stools because they allow them to move, twist and wiggle. I only have a few stools and one high table. I'd like to make one more high table and stools to go with it. Students also need low seats for our low tables. They like the low tables but need something to sit on.
