My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, I know that my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I strive to keep my expectations high and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students love to move, love to read, and love to have a choice!

All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Their circumstances may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical".

As soon as they enter my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience in our classroom. By doing this in a creative, positive and fun way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence and success.

My Project

Wiggling and squirming can be done quietly while sitting on soft seat cushions, wobble chairs, wobble cushions, and balance ball seats. Flexible seats like these invite my students to learn in a comfortable environment. The students enjoy having choice and a voice in the way they learn.

Having these choices of flexible seating can enrich their learning, engage the students more in lessons, and they can enjoy movement throughout the day.

This project is geared toward creating an environment in which students are actively engaged in reading, learning, and working together.

Flexible seating allows my students to find the type of seat that encourages them to be healthier, happier, and produce better results! Proven results show kids dislike sitting still, and these wobble chairs and wobble cushions offer the best of both worlds. I hope to use this type of seating in my classroom for many years. If a child can experience classroom learning in a comfortable and familiar environment that in which they are most efficient and productive, then I have achieved my goal.
