My Students

Each one of my students is creative and compassionate in their own way. As you get to know them throughout the year, you find their strengths and weaknesses. My students explode with potential success.

Engagement in learning significantly increases when my students are working in their groups around the room.

This shows me that each student is able to feel comfortable within the learning environment. Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My students come to school with a smile on their face and willingness to learn. It's always exciting to hear stories from their weekend adventures to start a new week of learning.

My Project

Adding the Ace Stools to my classroom will allow the students to soar in their learning with being able to pick a perfect seat for learning. Flexible seating has been proven to improve student attention and engagement throughout the day. Flexible seating has benefits for children that far exceed the classroom. Improved posture and focus is achieved with flexible seating options during the day.

Students deserve to learn in an environment that fosters multiple learning styles.

The Ace Stool will add to my collection of flexible seating options to support the multiple learning styles in my classroom while offering a comfortable environment. I am striving to be a teacher who is able to embrace multiple learning styles and provide a comfortable seating option so my students can learn at their best.
