My Students

I am a teacher of wonderful, wiggly, first grade students. My students tackle a lot of important work during the school day. First graders are learning to read, writing stories, solving math problems and exploring all different topics in science and social studies. We learn about getting along and learning together. It's a lot to ask from a 6 year old!

It's amazing what these little minds can do, but I know we can be doing it better for our students.

I am lucky to share my classroom with a second class of first graders for math instruction. So when I make my room more learner-friendly for my own class, another class of first graders benefits as well. I'm always on the lookout for ways to help their little bodies meet the expectations of school. I continue to work to understand the developmental needs of these kiddos and how I can help them grow. I want to inspire them as they begin their education and to help them be the best learner possible.

My Project

Ever been stuck in a long meeting, feeling uncomfortable and struggling to pay attention? This is true for too many students in our classrooms. Flexible seating helps give students a choice. Last year I changed my table heights, made crate stools and added cushions!

This year I'd love to add in wobble stools and wiggle cushions to help my students get the feedback and stimulation they need to stay focused in their work.

I've seen the amazing difference the wobble seats can make for kids, but their high cost has kept them scarce in our buildings. Can you help me?
