My Students

With almost 1,200 students, our school is the largest elementary in a major urban school district.

We have an amazing community of dedicated faculty, staff and students.

Our school is very diverse with the staff and students representing over twenty different countries. My students are native English, Spanish, Amharic, Swahili and Arabic speakers. Many of my students are immigrants or first generation Americans. The majority of my students are low socioeconomic and all of them live in apartments. The students in my school are eligible for free breakfast/lunch and typically do not have access to a great deal of technology. Aside from the lack of resources, my students have a passion for learning!

My Project

We need low-back, rolling chairs, stability discs and a class rug to create flexible seating options to meet my students' sensory needs. The flexible seating items I am requesting will increase motivation and engagement. These items will allow students to meet sensory needs, increase oxygen flow to their brains, and give them choice within the classroom environment. Educational research and best practices support flexible seating arrangements to help support learning within the classroom.

Our classroom environments should be conducive to open collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.

This simply cannot be done when kids are sitting in rows of desks all day. By implementing a flexible seating environment, my hope is the students will become more self-aware of what types of seating and environment help them learn best. I want to empower my students by giving them the opportunity to have choices.
