My Students

My students are anything but ordinary, and that's what makes them special. I am a general education teacher, but I have many type of students in my classroom, this ranges from students with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, and emotional behavior disorders. On top of this many of my students come from low income families, single-parent homes, and foster homes.

My students do not let these obstacles stand in the way of reaching their goals.

Everyday these amazing children come to school with a smile on their face ready to learn! Each and every day they try their best to achieve their goals.

My Project

The balance ball seats that I have chosen will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. Middle school students are expected to go to school and sit still for 6 plus hours. This is especially hard for my sixth grade students who are making the transition from elementary school to middle school.

Most of my students work so much better if they have the ability to move while they are working.

unfortunately at this point this is not possible in my classroom. The only option they have is to stand up while they work, which is not the best option. The balance ball seats will do exactly this, it will help these students who just need to get their wiggles out while they work!
