My Students

My students are faced with several challenges both inside and outside of the classroom. We are a Title I School, so many of my students' families are low income, and a majority of my students are on free or reduced lunch.

Despite that I have some of the most loving, energetic, and intelligent students that love to work hard everyday.

To keep up with their active minds I am looking for new ways to promote open collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.

My Project

Students feel empowered by having some type of choice and control over where they sit. Flexible seating allows them to choose where they work. It also allows them to change their location and position as needed.

Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, or bounce, which increases their oxygen flow to their brain, blood flow, and builds their core strength.

It also helps keep their young minds more alert and focused.

Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk all day.
