My Students

I am teaching at a wonderful Title I school where many of our students are part of our English Language Learner program. I am eager and grateful to teach them daily how the English language is used in reading, writing, and academic settings. So many of my students come from challenging backgrounds that hinder their ability to focus and be present daily. We continue to work hard as a class and as such, have stumbled onto some barriers to our learning.

I am very grateful to our community who has recently donated coats to our school.

Many students were bundling up in two sweatshirts to keep themselves warm during our harsh winter. We also provide kids with socks, pants, and shoes when their shoes and clothes do not protect them from the elements. Keeping our kids' basic needs met with nutritious food, proper clothing, and rich literature is the backbone of our academic community.

We currently have a class size of 21 students. I have read and researched different

strategies to fully engage our students while they are at school. Many doctors and specialists agree that engaging a student's muscles, has shown to increase their mental engagement and focus.

My Project

My kids will be actively engaged with their Comfy Active Kids Chair. I have a few in the classroom and they are a big hit! We always have students waiting to trade their seats for our active learning seats.

My students gravitate towards any active seating in the classroom.

They will be used throughout the day as an alternative to traditional classroom chairs. Students that have sat in out active seats have been focused more in class and have had fewer distractions as they work. I really want all students to have this opportunity to move their bodies and participate more in class.
