My Students

My students are extremely amazing and love learning! They come from Spanish and non Spanish spoken homes and are learning to adapt to new topics very quickly! Their excitement to learn a new language makes it even more exciting for me to teach. Due to their socioeconomic status (90% come from low socioeconomic homes) and language, my students do not have the opportunity to experience materials that enhance all academic areas. After Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, many of them got displaced and are still out of their homes.

My students come in to class so excited to see what activities they are going to use to learn Spanish despite their devastating Hurricane Harvey catastrophe.

Their shining faces are always eager to learn. I work in a Title I school, and funds are not always available to buy resources especially after being hit by the Hurricane Harvey disaster.

My Project

My students are organized into four different tables and they all have different needs that I accommodate daily. Their learning will become more successful with the flexible seating accommodation. They will be able to focus and engage more if they know they have options.

I have grouped my students according to their needs and I know that the flexible seating options I have chosen for them will encourage them academically because it will help them focus.

Not all of my students learn the same and I love that about them! I know exactly what students need which type of seat. The wobble chairs will be used for my students who need the extra movement in order for them to focus! The benches will be used as another flexible seating option and those will be designated for my students that need the extra seating room. The pillows will be used as accommodations for my students who prefer to sit "criss cross applesauce" on the chair and it will prevent them from falling off a chair when doing so.
