My Students

We are a charter school that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). My students are bright, energetic children who are eager to learn and experience things, especially through hands-on activities.

Children learn best through engagement, and I want my students to love learning and develop a passion that drives them to reach their full potential.

In 5th grade, my students are engaged in PBL and STEM projects as well as going out into the field to experience learning outside of a textbook. Our children are our future, and they should be given the opportunity to succeed.

My Project

Students in the 5th grade are at the top of the school and my students deserve to have the best shot at their dreams. I hope to give that opportunity to them with the help of flexible seating. Studies have shown that students learn best when they are focused and comfortable. With flexible seating, such as the ECR4Kids Surf Portable Lap Desks and the Learniture Active Learning Chairs, my students will be able to focus while still moving their bodies to release that pent up energy.

What is the best way to ensure our students succeed?

By ensuring that their learning environment offers them the best ways to help them open their minds and find a new love of learning!
