My Students

I am a teacher at a small school on the slopes of Haleakala in Upcountry Maui. More than half of my students live below the poverty line and all of them have the ability to rise above it. They are smart, social, and interested in just about everything! They are curious and enjoy exploring our island home with the friends they make at school.

Our classroom is a safe place for friends to collaborate on projects and is full of learning opportunities.

My students enjoy being able to rotate around our classroom to different learning stations. Students in our class can be found working quietly at chosen desks or sitting on floor pillows engaging in lively discussion.

Our classroom utilizes a flexible seating plan, a maker-space, and collaborative atmosphere to practice skills and make discoveries!

My Project

My students have the flexibility to move around the classroom and choose the working spaces that suit their needs. Our room has a rainbow shaped table, a hexagon shaped table, and a circle shaped table. They have a soft rug and low coffee table to work on and even a comfy couch to rest upon when they need to take a break.

This long rectangle table will provide a larger collaborative work space for their small group math lessons.

I carefully chose this table because of its durability and adjustable legs. Third graders come in all different sizes!! I believe children work best in collaborative peer supported situations and having a family style table that is smooth, durable, and adjustable is conducive to that belief. Please help me pass on our rusty individual desks for this beautiful work space!
