My Students

Teaching in a Title I school district my students don't get the "normal" experiences that children often do. They don't let that control their destiny though! My students love to learn and thrive on positive attention. When they walk into my classroom I strive to make them feel loved and provide them with a friendly environment to help them succeed. Despite the hardships that they face, my kiddos are ready to learn and do their best day in and day out. They have goals and dreams that I want to help them reach!

Our school teaches students in grades K-6 and provides fantastic teachers, a safe learning environment, and a desire to strive for excellence.

The goal of our school is to develop creative minds, build leaders, and a love for their small, rural community.

My Project

Fourth graders are very active. They like to wiggle and move when learning. This past year I have worked on making my classroom more comfortable when they have free reading time or need space to work. One of the purchases I made with my school budget last year was a Kore Wobble Chair. By giving students the option of the Kore chair, they were able to focus on tasks better, which improved them academically. Everyone in my class wants this chair! The problem is, I only have one.

Flexible seating helps students to choose a seating option that works best for them.

During independent work time, many students ask if they can sit on the carpet, in a bean bag chair, or use the Kore chair. They love to work in an area around the room other then their desk. When students get the option to move around the room I notice a different in their focus. They are more engaged, get more work completed, and are less of a distraction to others. If I had more Kore chairs, more students would be engaged and able to “move” in their chair versus sitting in the standard, hard plastic chairs. Giving students a choice in their workspace positively affects their willingness to complete activities. My fourth graders would be even more successful with more wobble chairs!
