My Students

My day is always exciting. Working with K through 6th graders in a small group setting is fun and challenging. Every group is so different, and it is so much fun getting to know them all!

During small group time, we are process driven, motivated, and encouraging with ourselves and each other.

I lead the intervention team at my school and work with five other hardworking and enthusiastic interventionists!

We work with kids who struggle, developing learners, and students who are ready for a challenge in small groups. These students have so much potential. They excel in a small group environment. Small group is perfect for these students because they get the individual attention they need, and that does not always occur in a class of 30 students. They have come so far. We work on specific standards and foundational skills that they might have missed to fill in the gaps and push students further!

My Project

My students need flexible seating options to help improve their focus and concentration. When students come to small group time, they are excited and ready to learn. Sometimes, they struggle to maintain their focus for the full 30 minutes. These items will help students maintain focus so that all of their time can be devoted to learning!

Sometimes we all need to wiggle a little!

These options are great choices for students who need a little extra wiggling in order to remain focused and engaged. Students will love the having the choice of the type of seat that best meets their needs.
