My Students

The descriptive word that comes to mind when I think of a majority of my students is overcomers. Most of my class is made up of students that are labeled as "migrant." This means that they travel with their families as the crops change throughout the season. These students are always moving and normally spend their afternoons working with their parents and doing their homework alone because their parents do not speak any English. The other half of my students come from broken homes and currently live with one parent who tries their best to juggle life’s responsibilities.

My students are overcomers and they WANT to learn.

Currently, everyone in our county has free lunch and breakfast due to the overwhelming poverty rates and we receive government-funded snacks as well.

Despite the odds, all of my students come to class every day with the determination to beat the cards that they have been dealt.

My Project

When I work, I want to be comfortable and sometimes it is not at a desk. The same goes for the students that are in my classroom. This Flex-Space floor collaboration bundle will provide the students with a different option than a normal desk. Many students also have attention problems, being able to move and change seating can eliminate the behavior issues that may arise. The Flex-Space bundle will allow students to get on the floor comfortably together as they are collaborating in all subject areas.

Students spend MOST of their school day in the classroom so their seating options need to fit their sensory needs.

That may be having a chair that allows them to move, a classroom that they can collaborate, and even a spot where they can work in peace. These students are learning that a classroom is not just within the four walls of a classroom. It doesn't have to be a place that is orderly and uncomfortable. Help these students ditch average desks and go to infinity and FLEX-SPACE.
