My Students

I teach 5th grade math and science in a rural school. I have a diverse group of learners that love school. Regardless of their abilities, I have discovered that my students are eager learners that are highly motivated and want to do better each and everyday.

My students are faced with many challenges.

What I have learned in my career is that children are resilient and can/will persevere when faced with such challenges. My students are dedicated learners who always strive to do their best.

Although I may not have control over what my students are facing in their home life, I do have control over our classroom environment! I strive to make our room a safe, warm and loving environment where everyone is a contributing member.

My Project

The stand up desk, the bean bag chair and the 3 lap desks will make such a difference in my classroom. I have been working toward making my classroom more kinesthetically designed, in order to create genuine student engagement. Research has shown dramatic increases in concentration, according to Fast Company (2015), and students become more attentive when using a standing desk.

Our class time is filled with projects, experiments, and hands-on lessons everyday.

Fifth grade students need to move around and find comfortable places to work and collaborate. Offering a variety of work spaces increases focus and engagement. Sitting in a cramped desk can be a distraction and standing at a regular desk too long can be uncomfortable for my growing fifth graders! The comfort of the bean bag chair will help to minimize fidgeting and distracting behaviors for some students. The ease of moving the bean bag chair will make forming collaborative groups quick and easy. Thank you so much for considering our project.
