My Students

My students in Dallas, Texas are wonderfully creative and active! They love getting to move around and interact with their environment. As young scholars, they come to school each day ready to be engaged in the learning process. Although they are excited to learn, many of my students struggle to stay focused. I am hoping to give them the opportunity to not only keep their focus, but maintain a high level of engagement throughout the whole school year. These kids are amazing and I want them to have every chance at internalizing how special they are!

My Project

Often, students get bored or antsy while sitting at their tables. By adding fidget bands and yoga balls to my classroom my students will be able to remain focused while also getting their wiggles out.

Kids need to feel comfortable in the classroom, and having access to alternative seating may be the difference maker to their success!

Educators want their students to be able to achieve to the best of their ability, but sometimes our kiddos just cant's stay focused. My goal is to give students seating options that are safe for them and their classmates and non-disruptive to their learning environment.
