My Students

My students are always excited about learning new information. They love to read new books and to be able to go deeper into books that they read. They strive to be the best at all times and want to do great things in life by making a difference. They love to share their knowledge with others and have such a great love for reading. They consistently rise to the occasion and cheer each other on along the way to reach higher stakes.

My Project

Research shows that allowing students to sit in comfortable, flexible seating options greatly enhances their focus. With a fulfilled project, my classroom would change quite a bit. I would be able to offer my students a variety of seating options based on what best meets their needs. These options will allow them to become more comfortable, find a responsible working space and get the most out of our work times and classroom activities. Both of which are needed to produce quality work. When I think about how I, as an adult, like to sit and work, it is not in a plastic chair. I like to work on the floor or in a comfortable rolling chair and I believe that children should be offered the same.
