My Students

Welcome to our wonderful class of first graders. We are located in North Dallas in the middle of several housing units, our elementary school is very old and it is well appreciated in the community. Our population is 90% of native Spanish speakers, and we are striving to help them become fully bilingual.

My students are very energetic and enthusiastic.

My students come every morning eager to start their learning journey. We first give them breakfast to satisfy their hunger and be prepared for a day full of learning opportunities. In our school our goal is to foster a love of learning in a caring, safe, and welcoming school, where the staff works collaboratively with the community to develop confident, responsible students who are well prepared for the future, to ensure that our students achieve their highest academic potential and are college and career ready.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. Currently when my students are choosing to work at the computers they have a choice of a regular chair or an interactive stool. We have four stools and they are always in high demand. Making students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at a regular chair.

My students are noticeably more engaged at the computers and they are less disruptive of their peers when they are sitting on an interactive stool and using headphones.

The five interactive stools that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective their time at the computers. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more.
