My Students

My class is full of energy. My students are talkative and eager to learn young boys and girls. We strive to be our best in all that we do every single day. However, we are an unconventional class. We need to wiggle, move, and get comfortable in order to try our best. We would love to have the opportunity and the responsibility to choose our seating and what works best for us!

Please help support these future leaders of America to learn as best as they possibly can and make a difference in our everyday learning environment.

My Project

The collaborative table and comfortable padded seat allow students to work in a small group setting without distracting others. Students are able to find alternative seats away from distractions and make responsible choices that suit their individual learning style. Through various flexible seating options, students are taught responsibility, sharing, kindness, and focus. The simple act of picking a good seat is actually helping these students focus on what works well for them and what doesn’t. Cognitively challenging students to reflect personally and academically to ensure they are successful in class. Learning is hard enough, why not make it comfortable too.
