My Students

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." This has been my motto starting this new school year. This is my first year at GES. We are an achievement school and also a Title 1 school. This means that approximately 95% of our students receive free or reduced price lunch. Our children have many challenges in their day to day life. Most of my kindergarten students have never experienced school before. As a kindergarten teacher, I am the one introducing them to school. I want them to love learning and enjoy coming to school.

My students are very loving and filled with lots of energy!

I am looking forward to a great year with my kindergarten students.

My Project

The items I'm requesting will help my students release some energy so they can concentrate on learning. My students need movement in the classroom. It's very hard for kindergarteners to sit still.

My students come to school every morning full of energy!

I believe if they have a safe outlet for their energy, they can focus on new information they are absorbing. A fun and inviting seating arrangement will encourage students to come to school and get them excited about learning. I will be able to engage them and keep their attention longer. I am excited to offer my students a new way to stay motivated and keep their attention with flexible seating in our classroom!
