My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds. Mine is a 100% free/reduced lunch school, and more than three quarters of the students come from low-income, high poverty backgrounds.

School is often the safe place for students to come for a warm meal, a friendly smile, and positive attention in their lives.

When my students are at school, they love to learn, explore, and teach each other.

With limited resources in our district, we are often unable to purchase items that students need to maximize their learning, explore the world around them, and challenge themselves.

My Project

Like all children, my students are very active individuals. Sitting still in a desk on a chair for several hours just isn't what they need. I let them stand or sit, whatever they choose but they need furniture that helps them be comfortable, wiggle, and learn.

With these flexible seating options, students will have the opportunity to be more comfortable while learning.

When students are comfortable, they are calm, focused, and more productive. Flexible seating also encourages community. Flexible seating enables students to collaborate and build community with a variety of students. Students are allowed to choose their seating daily and that let's them work with a variety of classmates throughout the week.

Students have sensory and movement needs. These options give them the chance to move and meet their sensory needs, which in turn will help them concentrate better. Lastly, students need choices in their learning. Flexible seating gives them that choice to control how they are learning in the classroom daily.
