My Students

Most of my students have been together since kindergarten, and you can tell. They are always playing with one another at recess, no one is excluded. I truly love this about them. As a first year teacher my students have welcomed me with open arms along with a few new students. You couldn’t even point out the new students if you tried. My class works hard, they are respectful and overall great kids.

My Project

My students spend a great deal of their time in the classroom. I want to make their learning environment as comfortable as possible. Desks are functional, but having the option to sit at a taller seat, seat near friends (covid permitted) and just be comfortable impacts a students academic.

The flex seating will be used in addition to our desks and allow for me to create a more welcoming environment.

My students work so hard each and everyday! I want them to feel comfortable when they are in my class.
