My Students

"Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson. I choose to blaze a new path: one where my students will thrive.

My students attend a wonderfully diverse community school.

We have a large special needs population, many English as a Second Language learners and a majority of our students qualify for free or reduced-price school lunch, indicating an economic disadvantage. Despite all of the challenges facing my school and students, we have improved test scores greatly in the past few years. We have been recognized by the state of Louisiana as a "Top Gains" school. We've also been designated an "Equity Honors" awardee, signifying outstanding performance among our minority and special populations.

My Project

When we are learning in class, we like to spread out in the room and find a place to work. One of our favorite seating options during work time are our Surf Seats, which allow students to sit on the floor on the base of the seat with a built in tray for working, rather than crouching over to write on their laps. These seats are neat! But, they are also oddly shaped and hard to stack.

This storage rack will neatly store our awesome seats in a way that preserves classroom learning space and minimizes the transition time of putting away the Surf Seats.
