My Students

My students are what make my job exciting. They come from a wide variety of socioeconomic backgrounds and cultures. Some have model home lives while others dream of one. In this hectic life of a classroom, I give them a safe place to share, collaborate, and feel safe.

In this ever-changing world, I want to show them what possibilities their lives hold for them.

The teachers at our school go above and beyond for our children. It is our goal to make them prepared for an ever-changing world. Many of our students need extra supports so that they can feel successful, just as their classmates without learning disabilities do.

My Project

I have chosen the stability ball chairs to help my students stay focused and engaged in a safe and quiet way. My students deserve the best because they are the best. They work so hard and I want to give them every opportunity to continue to do their best.

Students have so many demands placed on them and it is my responsibility to make their job a little easier.

I want to give them the chance to wiggle and stretch in a way that will keep them safe, yet focused on their tasks. The stability ball chairs will make a great addition to our flexible seating classroom. Thank you for reading and helping us to achieve our goals.
