My Students

The joy and fascination of discovery that I see when they are learning something new have had me thoroughly inspired and motivated as an educator in the field of early childhood education.

My students come from low socio-economical backgrounds.

Many parents work two jobs and the time they spend with their children is very limited. This limits their learning experiences greatly.

The fascination and eagerness in their eyes when they are learning

warms my heart and I see their future in my hands.

My Project

Sitting still for too long can cause the best of us to drift off in our thoughts and lose focus.

Keeping the students balancing in their wobble chairs and maybe even adding a little playful rocking can help them stay alert and focused.

Four-year-olds have a short attention span. Add lack of sleep or rest, which happens often, for reasons beyond their control, and they lose focus as soon as they sit.

We will be using these during small group instruction, where they get more individualized instruction. By rotating the students, they will all benefit from these chairs!
