My Students

Our school serves a population of about 520 students. We are a Title I school with 100% of our students receiving breakfast and lunch. Our kids are curious and eager to learn. They are anxious to see what is out there in the world for them to discover.

Our families are hardworking and determined.

They want the very best for their students and to provide for their future successes.

Our students, staff, and families want to be given the opportunity to learn more and see our students be all they can be.

My Project

The wiggle stools will allow my more active learners an appropriate outlet to help them be successful in school. Letting them wiggle will allow their brains to focus in on the critical thinking skills necessary to be a successful student.

These flexible seating options will allow students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them.

During independent work times they will be able to choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them.

Now in my 15th year of teaching I've worked with such a wide variety of learners, that I find giving them options on where they work really allows them to take ownership of themselves and their learning.
