Diversity is the highlight of my classroom. We are a community! My students are special because they come from a broad range of backgrounds, and they have varied needs and interests.
Being a fair educator doesn't necessarily mean giving each student the same thing, rather giving each student exactly what they need in order to be successful.
Help me to excite these unique students by giving them more responsibility for their own learning. These students deserve a comfortable learning space!
"Flexible spaces, educators agree, alter the fundamental dynamics of teaching and learning, giving students more control and responsibility, improving academic engagement, and undermining the typical face-forward orientation of the traditional learning environment." Students know how they learn best, and I deeply considered their suggestions as I designed this project.
Help me to improve productivity and attentiveness in my classroom via flexible seating options.
Children need to learn and grow as fully as they can. Standard desks situated in rows do not foster open communication and collaboration. Flexible seating is incredibly powerful by allowing students a voice and a choice within their classroom.
