My Students

I am working with 64 Fifth Grade students in an urban school district. The population of my students living in poverty is 98%. The students in my classes are a genuinely diverse community. Not only do students come from varying ethnic backgrounds, but the life experiences that they’ve had are incredibly unique.

Many of my students come from unsafe traumatic environments and learning can be challenging for them.

They are intellectual social and emotional beings with a desire to be learning in a safe environment.

They take pride in their efforts and are willing to challenge their minds for the sake of learning. Yes, they are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite these challenges, they thrive on creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My Project

It is important to create a learning space that is student-centered. A flexible seating classroom is one in which students choose to sit where it is most conducive to their learning needs.. One of its principal objectives is to reduce the number/duration of sedentary periods of time, which research has identified as a danger to health. Traditional desks in rows isolate students from each other. Flexible seating allows students to easily pair up, work in small groups, or discuss as a whole class. Many flexible seating options stimulate students' sense of touch. This type of stimulation can help children focus and process information.
