My Students

Our Title I school may be home to low-income students, but we are rich in character and perseverance! Our students are hard workers, kind-hearted, and strive to always be a better version of themselves than they were the day before! They come to class eager to learn and excited to try something new each day! I love how they take pride in their work and how they build each other up when one of them isn’t feeling particularly stellar at that moment...they are all winners!

My Project

My amazing students are in need of choices in our classroom. Every body is different and each all have different needs for comfort and safety. Some children need to stand up, while others prefer to sit with their backs planted firmly on the back of seats. But then there are those who will thrive in the classroom by having the feel of a stool because it helps their bodies feel free for full arm movements, turns and sitting upright on a firm flat surface.

Having stools in our classroom will provide a perfect "art studio" feel, grant children the flexibility for their own individual personal & physical needs, and allow for UNINHIBITED STROKES OF CREATIVITY!

One major issue we currently have is space. When a student prefers to stand rather than sit in a chair, the chair is pushed behind the child so they can work freely. This causes a tripping hazard for other students trying to move around the room to obtain supplies, seek assistance, or return items to their proper places. If the chair is pushed under the table then the back rest of the chair inhibits the child's movement in order to properly do their work.

This project allows two of my current eight tables to have stools.
