My Students

Individuality is a characteristic that my students possess, but I believe that is what makes them so unique. Although they are all so different, there are a few qualities that they all possess. The biggest one to me is their excitement for learning new things. My students work hard and persevere each day in our classroom!

Redesigning the classroom to allow for flexible seating allows for a change of teaching philosophy and structure.

Teachers will have higher levels of student engagement and have a better idea of what the students are working on.

My Project

I want my students to look forward to coming to my classroom and I believe this will happen with a learning environment that provides them with flexible seating options! Students need to be able to move around during the school day. When using flexible seating, the students are allowed to rock, lean, stand, etc. which in turn keeps them more alert because it increases oxygen to the brain. In addition, students with ASD, ADHD, and/or ADD benefit from this type of seating because it allows them to move freely while focusing on the task at hand. Processing information becomes easier when students use flexible seating. Sensory input will enable students to be less disruptive because they are able to use excess energy.
