My Students

My students are all special education students with various disabilities that affect their lives in a multitude of ways. Some of my students need information to be presented in a slow, simplified way in order to perform in all of their content area classes. Other students may have emotional disabilities that prevent them from controlling certain scenarios and may have to leave their classes in order to reorganize themselves. Finally, some students may have physical limitations that they need additional adult support with navigating the large building we are housed in. In addition, they may need support with navigating a classroom setting and advocating for themselves.

Being a special education teacher to these students is the most rewarding experience I could ever ask for.

My students are all different and, therefore, need to be treated as individuals. Differentiating all aspects of their curriculum and learning is imperative for their overall success in school and lives.

My Project

I have many students who find it difficult to sit in a traditional chair for extended periods of time. We have classes that are over 80 minutes long. Students get tired and off task easily, losing their focus and concentration. Having flexible seating like these may allow students an increased time of focus and engagement in teacher lessons and student learning. Being in a special education classroom, we have many students who have ADHD, ADD, and Autism. Having a choice of seating will lend itself to greater student success. Having a way to move and bounce, without being a distraction to others, is a goal for increased student achievement.
