My Students

“I am somebody. I was somebody when I came. I’ll be a better somebody when I leave”, Rita Pierson. My students trust in me and themselves to become that better somebody every day in my classroom. They are the most hard-working, dedicated, and driven group of learners that aspire to always achieve their dreams. My students’ voices are heard and always are empowered to take ownership of their learning. They are accountable for tracking their academic progress and personal goals. Not only do they exceed expectations within the classroom, but break boundaries of the normal expectations of what students with learning needs and disabilities are held “capable” of achieving. Every day, they become a better somebody and will continue on that path for the rest of their learning careers.

My Project

Fair isn’t everyone getting the same. Fair is everyone getting what they need to be successful. There are numerous benefits for implementing flexible seating within the classroom. It facilitates student choice, physical health, collaboration, comfort, sensory input, and fun.

Students want to feel empowered and take ownership of their learning.

Allowing students to move around the classroom pumps blood to their brain, burns calories, strengthens their core, and keeps the mind alert. Students with ADD, ADHD, and ASD benefit from flexible seating to promote focus and processing information while fulfilling their sensory needs. Providing flexibility makes learning fun and more engaging to commit to.
