My Students

Inclusion is such a rich, vast educational setting that helps students look beyond their disabilities and themselves with endless possibilities.

“Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or in the same way.

-George Evans

We are a part of school family who strives to implement excellence through academics, arts, and social skills in Pre-K through 5th grade. We develop and prepare students for life by exemplifying learning beyond the classroom, more real life application, and ultimately help them to become productive members of society. These goals are achieved through building strong relationships, offering differentiated instruction, and collaborative, effective communication among all stakeholders involved.

My Project

The days and times are over for classroom environments to be traditional and routine. Seating students in rows and columns is no longer effective to their academic success.

Giving students options, like wobble chairs and floor seats, has been proven to be more beneficial.

Flexible seating will allow students to choose their seating preferences as well as engage more active in their studies. Students will enjoy the classroom instruction while learning to embrace and accept that their differences make them stronger.

Furthermore, it adds accountability as students can become more accountable for their learning if they are in an environment that they can feel welcome and empowered to learn successfully and effectively.
