My Students

My students are enthusiastic, creative and passionate about their learning! They love challenging their brains with hands-on activities and projects. Everyday, my students continue to show their determination and strength while perservering to be their best. To them, giving up is not an option in our classroom. I love that they have a strong drive to succeed. They all have amazing brains and beautiful souls that inspire me day in and day out. They are the reason why I strive to be a better teacher every single day.

My Project

Flexible seating options are proven to help kids remain focused and productive. My kindergarten students love staying active! They learn best when they are moving. As a first year teacher, I want to provide my students with a comfortable and engaging learning atmosphere. Providing flexible seating options for my students would benefit their learning expierence tremendously. They will be able to learn in a calm, creative and adaptive environment.

My students will be able to wiggle, wobble, and jitter their way to success!

What 5/6 year old likes to sit still? None! Which is why I know flexible seating will help my students achieve their greatest success!
