My Students

My students are bright and eager kids with a desire to learn. They thrive on hands-on learning, and using manipulates to assist them in concepts.

I teach in an urban Richmond school that is striving to give struggling students who are in a higher poverty area the chance to have a quality education.

As active, impressionable kids, my students would greatly benefit from the option to have a classroom that gives them a place to learn in a way that is best for each of them and their learning needs.

My Project

I am working hard at making my classroom a safe, comfortable learning environment for my students. Many of my students consider my classroom their safe place. A flexible seating classroom would provide for all of students learning needs.

I want my room to foster a positive, higher learning environment to help push my students to their greatest potential.

In order for me to do this, I want to have a variety of seating options that offer a differentiated group of students their ideal learning situation. This includes cushions, stools, comfortable reading chairs, and seats for them to move safely. I feel that this will improve my students learning and give them a greater love for learning!
