My Students

Our students are proudly bilingual and participate in the Dual Immersion program offered through our school district. They celebrate and embrace their cultural differences daily in the classroom.

Our students live in a rural community and come from disadvantaged, low-income households.

For most of our students, the rural community in which they reside is the only place they have ever lived and known. For this reason, experiences in which our students can expand their horizons are not only new and engaging, but essential to their overall success.

My Project

My students often want to kneel, rather than sit at their desk, because they get tired of sitting. The emoji pillows will be available for students, so that they may kneel if they prefer, while completing assignments.

My students enjoy spending time in our classroom library looking for the next book to read; however, sitting on the floor while searching for a book is uncomfortable.

The bean bags will be placed in our classroom library to allow students to read comfortably.

The metal stools will be an option for students to use as they work in a small group setting.
