My Students

Many of our students are first generation Mexican immigrants, 46.2% classified as English Language Learners and 98.5% are economically disadvantaged. Several of our students come from homes which participate in state and federal assistance programs such as food stamps, welfare, the Women, Infant, Children (WIC) nutrition program, and subsidized housing and medical assistance.

Although my students face many challenges on a daily basis, that does not stop them from being happy and eager to learn.

The students at our school are recipients of a well-balanced curriculum. Courses are offered in every subject area: Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Technology, Art and Music. The instructional programs include academic core subjects at various levels, such as the Gifted and Talented, Bilingual, Special Education, and Dyslexia programs utilizing a variety of differentiated instructional methods to meet the needs of all students.

My Project

The Fidget Bands, Wobble Cushions, and Fidget Stretchy Strings that I have selected will help my students get the wiggles out. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. The Fidget/Sensory options will allow students to take control of their learning. The bands, wobble cushions, and fidget strings can be used anywhere in school! We will make sensory options across the school!

Fidget/sensory options allow students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students' work and demeanor and hope that the additional fidget/sensory options will help us grow even more!
