My Students

For two and a half years, my classroom has been housed in a temporary building and my students are struggling with managing their emotions in an appropriate manner. My K-5 Special Needs students are worried and anxious all the time. Almost 98% of my special needs students receive free lunch. My students are well behaved, motivated, energetic and excited to learn.

Some of them have no support from family and therefore, it is even more imperative for me to find the necessary resources so they can 'chill out,' meditate & dance to music, de-stress, and achieve academic success.

My students are distraught and need some positivity in their lives to create a good self-image and develop some self-confidence! The constant movement to get ART supplies has wreaked havoc on everyone's nerves.

As a dedicated teacher, the majority of my students are low income, but that does not limit their abilities or expectations. They have set high goals for themselves and want to come to a place that will help them achieve.

My Project

I wish to design a dancing area consisting of 12x12 colorful liquid sensory tiles, music and most of all - walking and dancing meditation.

My students will be energized and they will be uplifted with Music & Dance!

This dancing chill out corner will provide the students an outlet to be confident, expressive, perform to music, express their feelings, and release any negative emotions they may be dealing with that immediately impact their learning environment and hinder their ability to focus on their academics.

Immersion in the arts through music and dance will allow for self-correction and accountability. It will also provide the students with a chance to chill out, avoid melt down, and remain in class, at school, and in the environment where they are cared for, nurtured and learning is taking place.
