My Students

My students are a highly energetic and bright group of students who are dedicated to learning to the best of their ability.

As a first year teacher, classroom materials and resources have to be purchased in large quantities.

I wish for my students to learn in such a way that is beneficial to them. Whether that is using flexible seating, visuals, props, or classroom manipulative, my wish is that each students is able to find a way of learning that best suits their learning style.

My Project

Doesn't sitting in a desk chair all day make you sore and tired? Doesn't being tired and uncomfortable impair your ability to focus? Having a choice of where one can sit to ensure the more comfortable learning environment has a positive impact on student success in school!

My supporting my project, you will be supporting a choice of seat in my classroom.

My students will have options to choose from when deciding where they are the most comfortable learning. Stools, cushions, bean bags, and rugs will give each student a variety of choices when they are deciding where to work.
