My Students

When someone asks you what your profession is and you reply that you are a teacher, their response is usually, "you have to have a passion to be a teacher". Yes, that is absolutely true. You have to have a passion to make everyday a great day to learn. You have to have a passion to help your students meet a goal, whether it takes 30 minutes or 2 weeks. You have to have a passion to listen to little minds speak and then encourage them that their ideas can change the world. So I 100% agree, that yes, you do have to have a passion to teach.

My class has brought out a passion in me that I never dreamed I had for students!

To stand up day after day and see my students (who will one day be doctors, lawyers, police officers, and teachers..) work together and create ideas in the classroom is the most unbelievable (and rewarding) feeling! When my passion for teaching starts to shine through their passion for learning, thats when it all makes it worth the hard work.

My Project

As a 21st century teacher, it is important to realize that students learn in different environments and it is my job to help them find their best way of sparking creativity. By getting four Hokki stools to use in my classroom, it will allow my students to move around and "Wiggle while they work". These stools are great for small group discussion, brainstorming, independent work time, and so many other things also!

Every student that comes through my classroom will not be the same, and I want to make sure I am prepared to hand them every resource that I possibly can for them to succeed.

By having Hokki stools in my room, I will not only be giving my students an option for flexible seating, but these are also a great tool to get students up and moving and encourage an active classroom setting.
