My Students

To me, my students are my world! I am a first year teacher working at a Title I school. Our entire school receives free breakfast, lunch, and snack daily. My students may not come from a lot, but you would never know that. It doesn’t stop their imagination and dreams. My students come into class every morning with a smile on their face excited and eager to learn. No matter their home situation, or what they have gone through the night before, my students greet eachother every morning with a handshake, high-five, or hug to welcome one another. Our classroom is our happy and safe place. Each morning we spend our first half an hour working on our social and emotional skills. We have made huge gains in this area and are continuing to better ourselves each day.

We are truly one big family.

We push each other and hold each other accountable. My students have a burning desire to learn that is evident.

My kids voice that they are sad on Friday’s because that means that they don’t get to come to school for two days.

I am so thankful that I was chosen to be their teacher.

My Project

I teach my students in a small group setting for every core subject. The biggest distraction during my small group lessons are my students needing to fidget and move. Having wobble chairs will make a huge difference in our daily learning. These will improve my student’s learning by reducing the amount of distractions significantly. These stools will provide the amount of stimulation that my students need to stay focused for a 15 minute lesson.

Also, having different flexible, light-weight seating options that my students can move around the room on their own will allow them the independence to choose the best area in our class for them to be successful at.

These wobble stools will make a huge difference in our daily learning!
