My Students

Each day, my Sharp Scholars enter our classroom excited and energized for learning. They know that through perseverance and hard work, they will be ready for college and career.

Although half of our students qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch and many face challenges inside and outside of the school environment, this does not hinder their eagerness to learn.

They inspire me each day with their enthusiasm, and we create a classroom that serves as a safe space where they can take intellectual risks and develop deeper learning.

My Project

I have observed that when students can move about the room and choose from a variety of seating options, engagement and opportunities for collaboration increases. I would like to expand our available options and empower students with more choice by offering these wobble chairs.

I know from my own experience suffering from a traumatic brain injury that the classroom environment and arrangement of furniture can affect learning for students.

I have realized that perception and sensory issues can take away from my ability to concentrate, and therefore I am committed to creating a calm, inviting environment for my students.

The requested wobble chairs will help students move more freely in their seats without creating a distraction to their peers. These chairs will also assist the students in improving their posture and coordination. I believe this project will benefit my students by facilitating greater student engagement and focus, increased time on task, and higher levels of learning as they are empowered to choose where they would like to sit and learn.
