My Students

A peek into our room would reveal students interacting with one another, sitting on stability balls or chairs, engaged in learning. You would sense a community of learners who depend on one another, take pride in their accomplishments as well as support each other with their struggles.

As a teacher of a diverse group of students, I aspire to meet each students' wide variety of needs and guide them to attain their yearly sixth grade goals.

My students are full of energy so throughout the day we take quick "activity breaks" to get the wiggles out and re-focus. Jokes and laughter re-activate their brains and we forge on through our lessons. Our school provides a secure environment where staff members work together toward common goals and genuinely have students' best interests in mind.

My Project

I am anxious to add another "tool" to my teacher toolbox. I believe these stand-up desks will have a positive impact on student learning and success! Research supports the many benefits of standing not only for overall health benefits but to assist students who struggle to focus within the classroom. This is my starting point, adding four desks and hopefully I will have the opportunity to increase that number. I envision the desks in the back of the room and allowing students to rotate between stability balls, chairs, and the standing desks.

Donations in the classroom are truly a gift, appreciated by teachers and students.

If stand-up desks meet student needs and allow them the freedom they need to succeed, then mission accomplished. After all,"variety loves company!"
