Standing Tall and Learning It All

My students need a stand up desk and a yoga ball chair to help them stay focused when they get tired of sitting down too long.

My Students

I teach at a middle school in Southeast Texas that has really gone through a lot this year. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and all bring something unique to the classroom, but one thing that ties them all together is their perseverance and willingness to learn even through tough trials.

Through Hurricane Harvey, snow days, and a school shooting in a nearby town, I have seen my students show the world how strong they really are.

They have taken care of each other, and worked together to get through some hard battles.

I know that there are so many outside things that impact my students and how well they do in school, and my goal is to help them achieve their wildest dreams and reach their full potential.

My Project

As most teachers do, I have many students in my classes that are very squirmy and have the wiggles.

They get tired of sitting in the hard plastic chairs that most classrooms have, and their seating takes away from their focus on what we are learning.

I would like to add some stand up desks for those students that do better standing up because it allows them to move around more and refocus on the lesson at hand. I would also like to add yoga ball chairs as another option for seating that will allow them to move around a bit more and be a little more comfortable.

Lastly, my students move around a lot as we work in groups or as I let them pick where they sit to do independent work, so I would like to have enough clipboards for each of them to have one to do their work on. This allows more flexibility in the classroom and greater chances for learning.
