My Students

I teach at my alma mater in a relatively small blue-collar suburban community. The majority of my students come from lower incomes that qualify for free or reduced lunches.

Regardless of their socioeconomic background, students have a safe place in my classroom where we celebrate together the joy of reading, studying, and creating literature and poetry.

I typically teach 5-6 regular ed classes and 1-2 Pre-AP classes. My students have a wide range of intellectual ability, and, with that being said, they finish different assignments at different times.

My Project

The definition of differentiate is: to recognize or ascertain what makes (someone or something) different. As a teacher, I am doing this daily. I recognize that all students learn differently, and I do my best to meet all those different needs of my students. Something that I learned about in college, and that I have been really interested in, is "differentiated seating."

Differentiated seating pertains to a student's learning environment.

Some students learn best when they are sitting on soft seating such as a couch, while others learn best on hard seating such as a school desk. All in all, this year I would like to focus on giving my students options on different seating. I would like to start with a cafe style table, and get more options for my students in the future.
