My Students

Each and everyday, 62 students walk into my classroom with great attitude, ready to learn. These 62 students range from 3rd grade to 5th grade, many with special learning styles. They are creative, positive, and full of life. They are a very active group and adapt well to the project child model used within the classroom.

Despite being from an area that consists of over 80 percent low income families, my students are very grateful for the little things and put forth their best efforts everyday.

My Project

We need balance ball chairs,padded stools and stacking stools. This is a win-win for both students and the teacher. By adding flexible seating, students will not only be comfortable with their peers, but be given the pleasure of comfort in their environment while they learn. The students have such talent and ability that can be shown tremendously if given a more comfortable place to learn and move throughout the diverse seating.

Teachers throughout the world have reminded and inspired me to go above and behind to help them in anyway possible once they enter my classroom.

Teachers with flexible seating throughout my school have expressed to me the great pride the students have in their classroom.
