My Students

My students come from a small, very diverse socioeconomic community in Eastampton, New Jersey. I have eager 6th-8th students with specific behavioral needs ranging from autism to specific learning disability. These students inspire me every day with their desire to work hard and succeed despite that learning can be difficult for them.

It is hard to define the "perfect working spot" because it is different for everyone!

I want my students to grow in all areas of their learning, and I want to provide them with a variety of seating options in our classroom. My goal is to make the learning environment flexible, while instilling perseverance and independence at the same time.

My Project

By having alternative seating in the classroom, students are free to make a choice of which seating arrangement is best for their learning. By giving them a choice I am allowing the students to make appropriate choices to make them more successful in the classroom. This also helps reduce the amount of behavior problems that can happen in the classroom. Studies show that students learn better when they are physically active and comfortable. Students will be able to use bouncy bands and wobble chairs to move while working. Some students need movement to harness their energy while still keeping them engage in the learning environment. This project would significantly help my students stay engaged and successful in our learning throughout the day.
