My Students

"What a child can do today with assistance, she will be able to do by herself tomorrow." Lev S. Vygotsky. Working with students who come from a variety of backgrounds and difficult socio-economical situations make it critical to find ways to meet them where they are and help them achieve their dreams and goals.

Every child has the right to learn and to have the tools that they need.

The students that I work with come to school already behind. Behind because of their home, behind because of their minds, behind because of their financial situation. It is time they have a chance to be ahead.

My Project

Using sensory seats for students is a way to help them focus and learn in the best environment for them. Every student needs their best chance. Many students have disabilities that make learning difficult.

Providing students with Kore Patented Wobble chairs that move with them instead of restrict their movement, will improve their learning and retention.

Additionally, as they move through the educational system, they can modify their own learning to adapt to different situations once they understand that the learning is not what is holding them back, it is the method. Once they can take ownership, the sky will be the limit. It can all start with one chair.
