My Students

For over a decade, I have had the privilege of teaching at a truly diverse school. Due to that diversity, I have been lucky enough to work with 5th-grade students from every background with varying educational and emotional needs. There lies the real reason my love of teaching gets renewed year after year.

My students are unique as are their needs.

The 5th graders in my class look to me to help guide them to identify and use their individual gifts. While many students perform well in a traditional setting, it's become clear that many others have learning styles not suited to sitting still in one spot. It's my job to create life-long learners. I have learned that one of the most effective ways to do this is to assist students in identifying what helps and hinders their own learning.

My Project

Students need to be exposed to different ways of tackling the learning environment to help maximize learning. Many of my students have a hard time concentrating while sitting still at a traditional desk in a standard chair. Supplying my students with wobble stools will allow them to explore other ways of learning, so they can find the style that best suits them.

Kids are natural movers and shakers!

Their muscles crave activity. Motion stools provide flexibility and stability while allowing students to wiggle, fidget, and wobble without distracting others. These stools are much easier to manage than therapy balls and cushions and are also portable, so students can move around the room as needed. By donating to this project, you will help my students stay focused and therefore increase achievement and improve attitude in the classroom environment.
