My Students

Our class is a behavioral classroom. Students who have displayed behavioral issues for sometime are assigned to this class. The goal of this class is to build character traits, learn appropriate social behavior and teach them ways to calm down.

The students in my class are some of the most loving students I have ever had.

The goal of our class is for students to be able to function as most students do in our school. When they become upset they can become agitated and physically. We have had great success stories with lots of hard work. With different grade levels it makes it hard to keep up with where everyone is. The safety and security of everyone must be taken into account.

My Project

My students are in different grade levels and go to resource classes as well as block and P.E. Walky talkies allow them to be independent in their transition to these activities as well as alerting the classroom that they need help or are having an episode.

All of my students have challenges that keep them from being successful In a regular classroom atmosphere.

The fidget device will allow them to have more success in appearing as other students do. They will be able to take it with them from room to room and works in a desk or pocket and will not be distracting to other students.
