My Students

As the Intervention Specialist, I have the unique privilege of working with students from every grade and every classroom. Students come to me throughout the day to receive specialize instruction in academic areas of struggle.

Student engagement and expectations are high in my classroom and every student who comes in the room works hard to meet their goals.

All of theirs goals are individualized and it is so much fun to see them strive to reach it. It is amazing what can happen in a students motivation and effort when they know they can succeed and we are all behind them cheering them on.

My Project

Small group instruction is the key to our success. We work collaboratively at tables with up to six students and many time we have a hard time fitting around the table together. The two larger chairs allow everyone to serve as the teacher and facilitator of learning. The highest level of knowledge is being able to teach. My students love showing they are able to teach others.

The padded stools will allow our team to come together as one collaborative group, working together towards our goals.

They will allow us to all fit comfortably around the tables as well as give options for students to move around the room. Flexible seating enables the students to take control of their learning and make decisions on where best to learn.
