My Students

I am the general education teacher in an inclusion classroom. That means I work alongside a Special Education Teacher to ensure that our students get the education they deserve. My inclusion homeroom classroom is made up of twelve students with special needs and thirteen general education students. They are taught in a true co-teaching structure of parallel teaching.

All of our students are from low-income families and need materials and basic needs to help them succeed.

Many of our students come to school hungry, tired, and bringing emotional turmoil from home I want our students to know that I will make sure all their basic needs are met at school so they can rise and be the best they can be. Our students need to understand that the world is theirs, as long as they want it.

My Project

These Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats give my students options for their learning in class. Since many of my students have ADHD or many other reasons for not being able to sit still or focus at traditional seating, these seats will help them be able to move around the room and still focus and learn in comfort.

I parallel teach ELA, so my students often have to sit on the floor for whole group instruction and during Book Clubs; so these Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats offer them the perfect option for comfy seating for learning.

My students would really appreciate having options and comfort in their seating during ELA and more.
