My Students

Despite many of my students' low income/high poverty backgrounds, they love to read, write, and put their imaginations on display through a variety of activities and projects. They come to school eager to learn. This year, our class adopted Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland & Through The Looking Glass" as our classroom theme.

My students eagerly enter "Wonderland" each morning with renewed enthusiasm to see what new adventure in learning is awaiting them.

They love sitting in alternative seating. Currently though, we only have 3 options for seating that is different from the rest of student chairs.

My Project

My students love to sit on the floor, while working independently, in pairs, or collaborating in groups. Yoga bolster pillows will facilitate their ability to complete class activities and assignments comfortably on the floor.

We all recognize that our mind only absorbs what our seat can stand.

Further, we know that if we are uncomfortable, regardless of how well motivated we are, we may struggle to pay attention, focus, and complete the task at hand.

My students have come from classrooms with enough seating options to accommodate every student in the classroom. This project will continue to mover our classroom in that direction!
