My Students

My students are in Kindergarten through fifth grade. My school is in a small rural community where there are a lot of unique needs. Our school received the unique honor of being named a National Blue Ribbon School in 2018. My students all have disabilities including Autism, Down Syndrome, Learning disabilities, Angelman’s Syndrome, and developmental delays. My students have communication issues and have to find different ways to demonstrate their knowledge.

My students learn in unique ways and their instruction must be modified to meet their needs.

They are hard workers and do their best all day long. There are so many challenges students with disabilities face but they are constantly working to overcome these challenges and prove that they are more than their disability.

My Project

The wobble seats and stools will be so beneficial for my students because they will provide alternative seating and will help strengthen their core. The balance balls will provide my students with alternative seating as well and they will be able to easily move the seating around to where they are learning or working. The magnetic whiteboard and chart stand will allow for not only my students to have flexible seating but for me to have flexible teaching!

Flexible seating puts kids in control of their learning!

Having flexible seating will allow our classroom to be student-centered and, therefore, more successful.
