My Students

My students are third graders in a rural school district in Central New York. They are motivated to learn, excited to play and eager to do the best they can do. School is their safe haven in which I get to create a welcoming environment. They want school to be exciting and a place to enjoy life.

My students are learners, explorers, scientists, mathematicians, artists, athletes, musicians, readers, writers and much, much more.

My students are your future. My students are their parents' dream. My students are my world!

My Project

These stability balls and wobble stools will help my students wiggle while they work. In my classroom, I have a unique setup compared to others in my building. I have found over the last 2 years that my students work best when they can choose where they sit and the type of seat they get to sit in. I have very few traditional chairs in my classroom but also need more non-traditional seats to choose from. When my students are allowed to have controlled wiggling in their seats, they work harder, are focused for longer and produce higher quality work.
