My Students

Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often, we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants. John W. Gardner

We are an energetic Kindergarten classroom in the heart of our city.

Many of our students are low income and we are a Title One school. There is sometimes little support at home, due to a large ELL population. Many of our children only speak English in school. For many, this is their first school experience and my job is to make it special.

My Project

Three years ago, I was fortunate to get my grant funded for seat balls in the classroom. Getting rid of traditional seating was the best thing I have ever done. Seat balls are not perfect for every child though, and for this reason I am seeking some alternative seating such as wobble stools. This will allow those, who can not quite manage a seat ball, to try something else other than a traditional chair.

It is unfortunate that children who arrive to me in Kindergarten are lacking the upper body strength they should have.

Having alternative seating like ball seats and wobble chairs will help to increase the trunk strength my students are lacking.
