My Students

My students are full of excitement and eager to experience life! Their enthusiasm for learning is contagious. At our Title I school, our scholars work on building their 21st-century skills through collaboration, problem-solving, and critical thinking to solve real-world problems that link to our third-grade curriculum.

Unfortunately, the vast majority cannot afford the tools they desperately need that would assist them in improving their learning capabilities.

Although I often spend personal money for supplies and materials, there remain children who arrive at school lacking essential resources due to financial challenges. Please consider contributing resources to a child's educational success and future!

My Project

I am need a wobble stool. I received one and have seen amazing behavioral changes from some students and academic changes from others who are now more serious while working on these stools. Students will have an opportunity to use these stools on a daily basis. The use of wobble stools in our classroom will offer flexible seating. There are other great benefits in having them such as helping a child relieve stress and increase core function and balance. These chairs also reduce the number of times students get out of their seat. With these great benefits, my students will be able to maintain attention and focus on the task at hand. I do have many students that are hyperactive and I know for a fact these stools will help them.

We all learn in different ways.

Each choice that we make to structure our learning environment adds to a deep understanding of who we are as learners and helps us to develop greater confidence. Join me in my quest to empower young learners to make choices that will help them be successful students!
