My Students

As a teacher in a low-income and high-poverty school, our students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, our students deserve exceptional learning opportunities and an extraordinary learning environment.

My students are creative, collaborative, and full of spirit.

They like to move. They love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of our classrooms, we focus on their potential and growth while they are with us.

My Project

Do your ever bounce your leg when working? I know I do, and many of my students do as well! Imagine a productive way to expend this excess energy. Bouncy Bands are the solution! These Bouncy Bands will make a difference in my student's ability to focus and concentrate during the day.

Studies have shown that students are better able to focus when their bodies are in motion.

The creators of Bouncy Bands have demonstrated that students who have ADD or ADHD have improved focus when they have access to Bouncy Bands.

Bouncy Bands go on the front two legs of the desk and allow students to bounce their feet or rest their legs on the rubber strap. I currently have one Bouncy Band and it has gone far to reduce anxiety and help students expend excess energy, while increasing students' concentration. I look forward to adding additional Bouncy Bands to options for movement in our classroom!
