My Students

My students come from a low income neighborhood. My students are highly energetic learners who need help to reach their full potential. They are eager to learn.

They love coming to school but don't always have the resources to do their personal best.

In third grade, we are working on communities, simple machines, fractions, and learning how to multiply and divide. We work in whole group, small group, and independently.

With your help, I can provide them with resources to help them succeed.

My Project

I have recently added two wobble seats for my students. The difference these seats make is incredible. Students are able to focus for longer periods of time which results in better scores. Students are excited to come to school knowing it is their turn for the green wobble chair.

My students currently are sharing the 2 chairs among each other.

It would be wonderful to have three more wobble chairs to add to our flexible seating option. Students love having the choice of where to sit. Students realize the wobble seats help them to focus and reach their personal best.
