My Students

Attitude of Gratitude is our class motto!

We work hard every day to see the good in our lives, our community, and in the world.

My students overcome adversity at home and come to class ready to take on the world. I am lucky enough to greet them at the door each morning offering them a safe, encouraging environment to grow, learn, and plan for a successful future. We often pause to point out the little things to be thankful for. I point out how thankful I am to see their smiling faces each day.

Why we need you: More than half the students in my class speak English as a second language, and many students are two or more years below grade level in reading. I know that with good teaching, engaging lessons, and generous donors like yourself, all of my students will make great academic gains and rise above and beyond our wildest expectations!

My Project

My students are ready to try out some wobble cushions and inflatable ball chairs while they read. Research shows that there are many benefits to flexible seating such as physical health, choice, collaboration, greater comfort, and even fun!

Giving my students a chance to use a wobble cushions and ball chairs during work time can help students to focus on the learning task that may require them to sit for longer periods of time while burning off energy or shaking off restlessness.

This is the perfect time of year, as we are approaching testing and then the end-of-year countdown! We would love to give flexible seating a try.
