My Students

My students are sweet and hard working. They come to school ready to learn, grow, and discover. They each come to me with a unique set of needs. I aim to challenge each one so they can each make a year's worth or more of growth while in my care.

Most of my students do not get the movement opportunities they need to live a healthy lifestyle.

I have them engage in hard work all day long. I would love for them to have a comfy seat that provides them with a little wiggle movement to help them do the hard work.

I am constantly on the look for different options that create a cozy and comfortable environment that kids want to come to and learn.

My Project

Kids love to have voice and choice. Just as I choose a special place in my home to work or settle in with a good book, I want my students to have the choice to be comfy while they work.

I like to read in my big comfy chair, and I have chosen a bean bag chair for students to snuggle up with a great book.

However, when I am writing or working on bills, I like to sit on a cushioned chair at a table. Our school provides hard gray chairs for students, but I have chosen the soft barrel seats for kids to have a soft place to sit.

This project will help me create an environment that is welcoming and provides students with choice.
