My Students

My fourth grade classroom is filled with 27 vibrant young learners. For them, home is a small rural community. The students have an infectious spirit. They take an enormous amount of pride in our community and in our classroom. They are eager to learn, support one another, and strive to better themselves each day.

They have active minds and active bodies, and it is my hope to create a classroom atmosphere that addresses both.

They truly want to do well. I want to help them in achieving this by providing the most supportive learning environment possible. Thank you for supporting us and this initiative.

My Project

We have been enjoying flexible seating for almost a full semester now and the outcomes have been so exciting to see and experience. We were hoping to just add a few final touches to our room. The fidget bands have been a huge hit, but the ones from the very beginning of the year are starting to show their age and need to be replaced. We were also hoping to add another lighting option as well. Lighting can help with mood, relaxing, focusing, and even help reduce the glare on the board to help students see better.

The seating options have made a significant difference not only in the layout and design of our room, but more importantly in the classroom atmosphere.

The students have taken so much pride and ownership in their room and learning!
