My Students

At the beginning of every school year, I read a book to my students titled, The Junkyard Wonders. Now I know what you're thinking, junkyard? However, a junkyard has special parts and pieces that make something better than it was. That's what I want my students to always know. When they are apart of something, they make it better.

I teach at a Title I school in South Carolina where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Our school is located in the midlands of South Carolina and we serve approximately 800 students in our school, grades K4 through 2nd grade. I live, go to church, and teach in this community and have done so all my life. Many of our students come from single parent homes where often parents hold more than one job to make ends meet.

My Project

Children who move a lot during instruction sometimes are called difficult to handle in the classroom ; however these students are not difficult. These students are rather those that are kinesthtic learners, who like to move their muscles and their brains! These stools will help my students to be more focused and increase their posture while they practice reading and solving math problems. Many of my students enjoy our current exercise ball seating because it allows them to freely move while they concentrate. Let’s face it, we all like to be comfortable while we read or work. Why not allow the students to do the same?
