My Students

Love to sing, create, move, and learn? You've come to the right place! Our third-grade classroom is a place of exploration, music, movement, and the excitement of learning. We are a high poverty school located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Our area is very rural. The closest semi-large city is over four hours away. Many of us may not have seen an escalator or an art museum, but we are creative, resourceful problem-solvers and know how to have fun in the snow (well over 200 inches in a season).

We are building a classroom community as we support each other, dig into technology, discover the world around us, and dream big!

My Project

When you enter our classroom, you will see students busily working and discussing problems in math, reading, science, and social studies. Other students are working on individual projects, which they will then share with the class or partner. Some are using chairs, while others have wiggle cushions, t-stools, or TiltED Active Seating.

Giving students options for where and how they would like to work increases student engagement and focus.

TiltED Active Seats are stackable and easily accessible for students to pull together for a small group or individual work at their desks. We have a few of these already in the classroom, and the students are requesting more so additional students have the opportunity to use them.
