My Students

My Kindergarten students are emerging bilinguals as they are learning and speaking every day in both English and Spanish!

My kids have big hearts, curious minds and enthusiasm for learning new things.

We are part of a small dual language community where both students and staff value cultural and linguistic diversity. We face the challenges of poverty by leaning on and learning from each other. We are a team and a family in our classroom! Every day we are learning what it means to say, "I better my world, I better myself." Thank you for helping us to do both by contributing to our classroom community.

My Project

"Choose the chair that will work best for your body and help you learn best." That is what I said to my Kindergarteners at the beginning of each week before they selected their flexible seating. Last year was the first year that I implemented flexible seating in my classroom. It was so fascinating to see what the students chose each week! And I loved watching their understanding of their own needs develop as they tried using different chairs.

The wobbly chairs were always a favorite and the first ones chosen!

I watched students who had trouble sitting still in a normal chair use the wobbly chairs to sustain movement and focus simultaneously. All students have different needs, and these chairs help students who need more physical stimulation to maintain focus and experience higher levels of success.

Our school district invested in flexible seating last year, but was only able to buy a few of each type of chair for classrooms. My class size is larger than last year, and I anticipate more students needing to access wobbly chairs. Just having a few more wobbly chairs will help more of my students self-select a tool that will meet both their preferences and needs.
