My Students

Living in a low socioeconomic community provides its own set of daily challenges. My students set the standard for achievement. They are creative, energetic, and full of questions. As a Reading Interventionist, I teach all grade-levels. The majority of my students are in the K-2nd grade.

All of the students that I teach are considered to be functioning below grade level that's why they were placed in my class.

My students struggle with reading and math on a day to day basis. I have students that are 2nd grade and functioning on a Kindergarten grade level.

I encourage my students to be open and comfortable when learning. Although, many of my students live in poverty, don't have a normal living situation and/or considered homeless, they are very capable and willing to achieve the high expectations that are set for them in my class.

As we work together in striving toward proficiency I aim to assure that my students are able to learn comfortably. This will make learning fun to them and help those students who have a difficult time sitting in a desk.

My Project

Flexible seating is so much fun for students! They are able to sit in spaces and positions other than those a normal student desk allows. Students are able to sit closer to the teacher or other learning target, to spread out their materials, and to easily move their seat to accommodate the movement of the teacher and the activity.

Since I began using flexible seating in my classroom, I have seen increased student motivation, interest, participation, and learning!

Class is more fun and math is more interesting! Having these adjustable Wobble Chairs will help those students who like to learn while standing and will be a perfect addition to my classroom and my students will love earning a chance to use them every day!
