My Students

I am a second-grade teacher in California. I have a very fun and active class. Most of the time, my students like to work on the floor or standing up. They often need brain breaks to get their bodies moving. My students are kinesthetic and visual learners who thrive with movement and technology.

I teach at an amazing Title I school where students come from families of lower-income and limited resources.

The community is very small but close-knit where families get excited to support and participate in school activities.

Most of my students are English language learners who are eager to learn and come to school. My class consists of thirty-one intelligent students who are driven by hands-on learning and collaborative discussions. They look forward to brain breaks, meditation, and anything involving art, music, and technology.

My Project

We can't expect an adult to stay seated for eight hours without stretching or exercising, why should we expect it from children? Hokki Stools will be an excellent addition to our classroom. They will allow ​students to continue to be active while still focusing on learning. Students can use the Hokki Stools during small group, computer station, or whole group. Several of my students are below grade-level and struggle with reading comprehension and fluency. Students will be able to stay seated while getting some exercise and rocking back and forth! Providing an exciting and alternative learning environment will promote student engagement and a love for learning!

Donating to our project will benefit all students in my class by providing alternative seating and a flexible learning environment.

It will especially benefit my students with learning disabilities who struggle staying seated for short periods of time.

Adding Hokki Stools to our class will also make for a fun and inviting learning environment.
