My Students

Our math class focuses on developing problem-solving skills and mindsets that will last a lifetime. Each day my students demonstrate grit, perseverance and growth mindset to overcome challenges.

I teach fifth graders from diverse backgrounds who are exceptionally kindhearted, hard-working, and motivated to learn new things.

Our tight-knit community school is a place where students come to be inspired and challenged. The goal of our classroom is to foster a positive atmosphere that allows all students the opportunity to achieve success.

My Project

When many people picture school they think of desks in rows with students staring at a chalkboard. Many classrooms today are trying to change this image for students! In my classroom, I try to create a space that is not only comfortable and welcoming but also one that is adaptable to create a learning environment that is tailored to the activities we do in class. If we are presenting iMovies on Monday, I want my classroom to feel like an auditorium, and if we are doing group projects on Tuesday, I want to quickly change the room to create a collaborative environment where students can easily work together. The key to being able to accomplish this is having furniture available that is highly versatile.

The Nugget is a foam "play couch" that can be constructed a variety of ways, not only to create a flexible seating environment that is welcoming but also to give students furniture that is easily adapted to whatever shape is best for the task at hand.

The Nugget is a light-weight, easily configurable piece of furniture that comes with 4 foam pieces. Having a Nugget in the classroom will help students find a comfortable place to work, and will also allow for more flexibility with how the classroom is arranged. With a Nugget Comfort when students picture school they won't think of a boring experience with desks in rows, but a highly engaging, adaptable environment that was constantly changing to fit their needs.
