I work in a diverse, urban neighborhood school. The students I work with come from a variety of home environments. I provided special education services to our school's upper elementary students.
I work with students who struggle academically; my students have varying learning disabilities.
I enjoy filling my classroom with an abundance of resources to help them succeed.
I love my role as an Instructional Strategist because I am able to provide my students all of the tools and strategies they need to be successful, not only in the classroom but also in life.
Currently in my classroom, I do not have flexible seating available for my students, which I think will make a big difference in our classroom. The seating will provide alternative seating for my students to use during the school day. My student can use The Surf chair to sit on the floor or sitting in a chair. The way it is designed, my students have a portable work surface.
I believe that providing my students with flexible/alternative seating will increase student engagement and motivation in the classroom during assignments and activities.
By having this seating available, I am providing my students with an opportunity to choose the type of seating that makes them feel comfortable in the classroom while learning.
