My Students

Our school district is unique as it is set up with grade level schools; there is a school for Kindergarten, first grade, second and third grades, fourth, fifth, and sixth grades and finally seventh and eighth grades. This was done as a way to eliminate grade-level schools resulting in a mix of students from different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. My class in particular has students from five different cultures, and students who are in GATE, ELD, and RSP.

In our classroom, we are a fun, loving group of students who are eager to learn.

We take pride in our classroom and treat each other like a family. We encourage each other to work hard and become better learners.

My Project

The 21st century classroom is a place where technology, creativity and ideas come together. It is imperative that students feel comfortable and alert while working to express their ideas both independently and collaboratively with their peers throughout the day.

Flexible seating will allow students to build a sense of community and responsibility as they take ownership of their learning and classroom environment.

Wobble stools, bean bag chairs, and cushions are some items that will help my students feel more comfortable and focused throughout the day. Flexible seating will keep my students engaged, responsible, and get the most out of their learning.
