My Students

I teach in an urban Indianapolis school and have 25 students in my 1st grade classroom. My class is a mixture of Hispanic, multi-racial, African-American and Caucasian students as well as students with special needs. My children are considered high-risk because of the low social-economic status of their families. Over 85% of the school’s student body qualifies for free lunch.

Every students deserves the opportunity to learn the way they learn best.

My students need flexible seating in order to maximize learning and engagement. They come to school everyday eager to learn and be apart of our classroom community. This project allows for each student to select the best learning environment for them.

My Project

Student come to school with a lot challenges and obstacles they have to overcome. Creating a safe and loving environment for students is something that I strive to do daily. Part of creating a safe and loving environment is knowing what my students needs.

My students are used to the fast pace of daily life and it can be difficult to learn when they have built up energy.

Flexible seating will allow my students to choose an seating option that will work best for them. These options will all allow students to bounce, wiggle, lay down, or rock while engaging in their learning. Students will get the options of selecting different seating options depends on their energy level, mood, and how they are feeling.
