My Students

I am the physical education teacher in our kindergarten through fourth grade building. I work hard promoting healthy lifestyle throughout my school. Stand up chairs would be a logical transition of healthy lifestyles into the classroom.

Our school is a high poverty school.

Our student need to move in order to engage their minds. It doesn't make sense for students to sit hours at a time. According to the District Report Card 67.3% of our students come from low-income families and 1.4% are homeless.

My Project

Stand up chairs will allow students to move, wiggle and release energy while staying focused and on task. The desks have swinging bars at the bottom that allows students to move their bodies and avoid otherwise distracting behaviors. The desks promote physical fitness and engaged learning. I anticipate starting with two stand up desks and work towards an entire classroom set.

I love the initiative of Stand up Kids, they are working to lessen the amount of time students are sitting.

Students average 4.5 hours of the school day sitting! Standing desks are a simple way to create a movement rich environment where children are more engaged and perform better academically, burn more calories and just plain move more.
