My Students

The students in our classroom are kind, energetic, enthusiastic, learning, caring, and growing! Our 2nd grade classroom is an exciting place to be! Each day the students in my class teach me to see the world through their eyes.

Daily, the students in our classroom amaze me with new discoveries and learning.

Second graders are eager to learn! Not only is learning important in our classroom, but we also strive to be kind, empathetic, and good friends. I am lucky to spend my days with the 23 awesome students in our room.

My Project

I want to bring more flexible seating options to my classroom! My students are active and enjoy different seating choices. When young students have seating options it can increase engagement and attention to their learning tasks.

The flexible seating items I am requesting are two standing tables that will help us in our classroom by providing a way to move while working!

Providing students with a clean, comfortable, flexible, and organized learning environment is important. By providing more seating options, students can take ownership of their learning by making choices as to how they work and learn best. Our students take great care of our room and pride in how they can care for our classroom.
