My Students

Our school is a special place. You feel it the minute you walk in the door. The students are enthusiastic and engaged, and the staff is caring and invested. We synergize together to make a safe and loving place where learning is student-centered, and choice is embedded in our curriculum. We teach leadership skills and offer numerous opportunities for students to use their talents and skills to not only shine in the classroom, but also in the community. Students are encouraged to use their voices and share their thoughts for school improvement. We celebrate student talents and help them showcase their special abilities.

Our students are especially grateful to have a safe place to learn because their needs are not always met at home.

We are a Title I building, with over 80% of our students coming from low-income households. We are also a diverse building. We have a large ESL population, and most of our English Learners are refugees from Iraq. Our students and parents are thankful for the many services we offer to enhance life both in and out of our school, and they appreciate all we do to go above and beyond for our families.

My Project

Students learn in a variety of ways. In order to meet the needs of all of my English Learners, I want to provide flexible seating in my classroom. In this way, I hope to create warm and welcoming spaces for students to grow and develop. Within each unit of study, students are provided opportunities to work on individual or group projects in comfortable seats around my ESL classroom. As they work, students can find places to work that meet their needs and help them to focus on learning instead of getting comfortable. Sitting on the sofa chair or wobble seats will allow students something other than the traditional chair and table or rug options. Having a choice in seating will help students to feel ownership over their learning and will develop interest in completing their work. Students will be excited to work in spaces where they feel most successful, and I will be proud to offer these options to all of my 55 plus K-5 students on a daily basis.
