My Students

I am a first-grade teacher in a high needs school with limited funding. We usually have about 16 to 20 students in our class. Most students come from low-income households.

In our classroom, we have a sense of community with an emphasis on kindness to others.

The students come from different backgrounds and have many different needs. The students are encouraged to work hard and they show great excitement for learning. I love the way they enjoy hands-on, engaging activities.

My Project

My students benefit from an inviting classroom. I want to create a classroom in which students are free to sit and complete tasks comfortably. Children are more successful and engaged when they are physically comfortable in a classroom. We currently have traditional type seating with chairs and tables. I would like to provide some new options with the air stability wobble cushions to use on our current chairs or other places in our room. I would also like some Wobble stools and floor chairs as other options.

We differentiate the curriculum to meet the needs of the students and now I would like to meet their needs to make them physically comfortable.

I hope to provide an environment to motivate my students to reach their highest potential.
