My Students

My students are special because they struggle on a daily basis in math and reading, but they never give up. All of my students have an IEP (Individualized Education Program) geared towards helping them improve academically and/or with social/life skills. My students come from all different kinds of backgrounds and all need a little extra encouragement to help push them along.

I am a special education teacher from a Title I school.

A majority of the students at my school are on free or reduced lunch. To some of them, school is the most stable environment they know.

My Project

My students need to move and having different seating options is so helpful for students. My students in particular are special because of their learning disabilities. Adding different seating options have been very beneficial to our classroom. We currently have two types of seating in our classroom (regular chairs and Hokki stools). We at one time had an exercise ball, but it was hard to keep it from rolling. The kids loved it, so I've decided to add these chair balls to the classroom. Having the option to move around while learning has had a great impact on my students. They focus much more than in the past. Alternative seating is also a non distraction to other students and allows students movement. These would be a great addition to our classroom.
