My Students

I have the honor and privilege to teach amazing second graders. I frequently tell them that we are a family and that our classroom is our home away from home. We love to work together on art projects, STEM challenges, buddy reading, math games, and much more! We also work hard to build positive relationships, classroom community, and develop learning ready strategies to be successful in the classroom.

I believe every student can learn, especially when they are provided with the very best tools.

My students learn in many different ways. I encourage them to work in areas of the room where they will be most successful. Where they will be learning ready! For some, that means laying on a pillow with a clipboard. For others, it means balancing on a stability ball while sitting at a small group table.

No matter where they sit or what they use, my students are more successful when they have the freedom to move and choose where they will learn best.

My Project

Flexible seating helps support student learning, student engagement, self regulation, and what it means to be learning ready. Students are encouraged to work in an area that sets them up to be successful and fills their need to move around.

Wobble stools allow students to wiggle, wobble, and move but also allows them to focus on their work.

Their need of movement would be fulfilled and they would be able to concentrate more on their learning.

I ask a lot from my students. To try their best, to never give up, to ask for help, and to be respectful to the other learners around them. The last thing I will ever ask is for them to sit still, in a chair, at a desk, and to stay quiet. I want them to explore, create, learn, socialize, support one another, and flexible seating tools help create this type of learning environment.

I will always encourage my students to find their learning ready spots. A new set of wobble stools would be a perfect addition to our flexible seating tools.
