My Students

My students all have emotional needs that they must compete with daily while at school. Most of my students have experienced some type of childhood trauma that is contributing to their social and emotional needs not being met. They have been placed into my therapeutic classroom to help them learn to regulate their emotions.

My students often struggle with hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and handling frustrating situations.

These students need an out of the box way of learning. They need to be able to move around while working on academic tasks. My students are eager to learn and want to be the best student they can be. Often times it is difficult when they are focusing on sitting still, surviving the difficulties of their everyday lives, and combating the academic deficits due to a disruption in their learning.

In my classroom I am educating the next lawyer, social justice advocate, plumber, and fashion designer. I want to be able to unlock each student's potential by providing a learning environment that is suitable to meet their basic needs.

My Project

I work with a group of students who often need a little extra in order to be successful. They come from a multitude of backgrounds and family situations that can be challenging. Many have experienced trauma that is unimaginable. Often time they display hyperactive behaviors as a defense mechanism.

Flexible seating will allow my students to achieve their highest potential will working comfortably.

Flexible seating will give my students the opportunity to choose a safe space to sit while they are learning. It allows for them to move about while still staying engaged in the academic lesson. Flexible seating will help eliminate one barrier to their learning. With lap desks, seat cushions, and wobble chairs help my students work comfortably while managing challenging behaviors.
