My Students

There is a Tibetan proverb that says, a child without education is like a bird without wings.” Every day, our students come to school to receive the education that will allow them to fly. Many of our students come to school hungry, tired, or scared. They carry the burdens of generational poverty, addicted or incarcerated parents, neglect, or abuse. And yet, even with these obstacles, our students are eager to learn and grow. Our classrooms are a safe place for them where they can share their thoughts and gain the skills and confidence that will help them to soar above the challenges they face.

My Project

Many of our students come to school unprepared for the task of learning. They may not have fully developed the ability to sit still and sustain focus. The materials that we are requesting will help our students regulate their “wiggles” and pay attention. In addition, studies have shown that flexible seating options empower students, increase metabolism and blood flow to the brain, and increase student motivation by adding an element of fun to class. We hope to use the materials that we have requested to create classrooms where kids want to be, and where our students feel like they have an outlet for behaviors that they may not yet be able to fully control.
