Flexible Seating Arrangements
My students are energetic, insightful and love to learn. They are ambitious, great citizens and lovers of a brain break or two. They love to move throughout the classroom during the day instead of sitting at their desks. Some stand, some sit on the floor, some sit with their feet in their chairs trying to find comfort in the ordinary classroom they are given.
They are eager to learn and will do so much more in a group atmosphere where they can change seating arrangements.
Movement in our classroom is a must for all learners. My students learn best when they can choose where and how to sit.
Flexible seating is supported by various research studies which indicate that alternative seating increases students development through greater focus and physical strengthening. The use of an alternative form of seating can ensure proper positioning, in turn affecting a student’s ability to focus. Students who are able to focus better and for longer periods of time will be able to learn more efficiently in all academic areas, including reading and language arts.
Through flexible seating in my classroom, I believe student performance in both reading and math will greatly improve over the course of the school year.
I expect that behavior patterns will also decrease with the use of flexible seating. It gives my students the freedom of movement and the proper positioning of their bodies to remain focused on activities that are vital for academic achievement.

During a trip to the laundromat, a little a boy approached me and gave me a card. He said, “If you don’t have a church you go to, you can come to mine. Here’s a card to remind you.” He gave me the card, I said,”Thank you!” and he walked away.
I didn’t tell him that I already attend a fabulous church (Revolution Church, Gastonia, NC). I just listened to him and stood in awe as a little boy wanted me to know Jesus. He had invited me because he knows Him too and how much Jesus loves me.
As I was leaving, I spoke to his mom and said, “Your little boy has great courage to invite others to church and to know Jesus. He will be very blessed throughout his life. Sometimes it takes a child to lead others to God. I know this to be true in my own life and my family’s life.” I told them I would most definitely be there.
It reminded me of another little boy, Jesus, who came into this world as a baby to save it, to save us. Sometimes, it takes a child like the little boy today who reminded me that just an invite, just a conversation, or just a reminder can lead someone to Jesus and change their life forever. Be that little boy, be like Jesus and change the world; one invite, conversation or reminder at a time.

I’m pouring out my heart at conferences to let you know I’m fighting for your child, pushing them to the next level and loving them with everything I am! And I’m thankful for your support of my purpose.
Your Child’s Teacher
Unfortunately, most teachers do not work for the money. (the truth is: there’s no money in teaching). Teachers actually teach because they love it! Most would do it for free, by hey, we gotta pay bills and eat.
The support from parents is very important to us. Coming to our school conferences allows us to showcase your child’s work and the successes their making. It also allows us to discuss things that aren’t so great, like behavior.
Let us in! We should be supporting each other. Most teachers have 25-30+ students they see everyday. Your child is one (1) of them. Let us help you maximize your child’s potential! We love them like our own!
