My Students

After a year of flexible seating, my students came to school feeling excited and ready to learn. They were more engaged in learning and felt comfortable because they were able to move instead of staying still in one hard chair. I have found that several students like to stand and work. I would like to add this as an option for my students. Thank you again to all who donated the first time and now.

"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire"-William Butler Yeats.

My class is full of eager and diverse students that make up our class and school family. We are in a small district in central California. We are a S.T.E.A.M. and a Title I School. There are many students on free and reduced lunch. We also have a variety of academic and socio-economic levels. My students have so much potential and I want my classroom to inspire them. These students have so much to give, let's give them a great education!

My Project

My project is an add on from my first project, Wiggle and Work. The original project helped establish flexible seating for my students. I have seen many students wanting to stand and work but a short desk or table makes it difficult. So I have requested standing desks with a foot rest that wiggles. When students are able to make their own choice in where to learn, students become more engaged and responsible in their own learning.

I would like to see my student wiggle and work while standing and enjoying their days as successful students.

Many reports state that children feel that they are able to wake up their brains while standing and feel more focused.
