My Students

Our school provides an education to general education students along with a high population of students with disabilities. Being located on a military base, we also help to educate many of our service members' children. We are also considered a Title I school with over 50% of our school being socioeconomically disadvantaged. With the help of organizations like DonorsChoose.org, we are able to provide extension activities for our students.

Students at our school site are special because they spend about forty percent of their day with their peers that are on IEPs (Individualized Education Plans).

Our students mainstream with their general education peers to learn about science, math, and social studies. Once a week all the 4th graders at our school get together for an enrichment activity. This year's group is particularly interested in hands-on activities to aid in their learning on science concepts.

My Project

As we all know, not everyone learns the same way. Children do best when they have options to meet their individual needs. These lap desks will give students the freedom to work while standing or sitting on the floor.

These lap desks will allow students in my classroom a nontraditional option when completing independent work.These lap desks will help to support my commitment to flexible seating options in my classroom.

I currently have a standing desk and bouncy bands, but these lap desks offer yet another option. By supporting this project, you are helping to meet the needs of all students.
