My Students

Our community is very supportive of children and their education. My students love to read and finding a comfy seat in the classroom keeps them engaged in their reading. We like to work in small flexible groups which can move around and encourage their thinking.

3rd graders are still just 8 years old and they need a lot of movement!

Supporting children and their learning styles is my goal to help them feel successful in school. Children love to learn!

My Project

Each student arrives to school with their own learning style and what it takes to be a successful learner. Students need to have flexible seating options to empower their learning style. These Hokki stools and Balance Disks greatly increase students' ability to remain on task and focused during work ad reading time.

Meeting the needs of the variety of learning styles is the job of a teacher so all children have an opportunity to be successful.

My hope is that as they learn that they can be successful in school with the small changes in how they get to work, collaborate, read and write they will build a love of coming to school.
