My Students

I teach in the Ashwaubenon School District. Ashwaubenon is located near Green Bay, WI . The Ashwaubenon School District has many cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our school district prides itself with offering the best education to all students.

Making choices and being comfortable allows the students to stay vested in their work and behavior.

Students work with others, sharing materials and spaces and move around the room. These students are working hard to become independent learners, responsible citizens, and positive decision makers. They crave new experiences and engaging, real-life learning opportunities.

My class is made up of students with a variety of needs. Students gain a sense of ownership within our classroom and are enabled to become invested in their own education.

My Project

Students that are not comfortable have a difficult time focusing and completing assignments and projects. Cando Stability chairs can improve our classroom environment for learning by increasing student strength and stability and allowing for movement to help students stay on task. Students have found success using stability balls because they help in decreasing distractions, fidgeting, and improving core strength. When students experience success it fosters a love of learning for life. Learning is the pathway to successful adults. When students begin to succeed in classroom their behavior improves, their self esteem soars, and it ignites a desire to learn even more.
