My Students

I am a Resource Teacher and going into my 6th year in a low income/high poverty Title I school. Special Education is definitely my calling in life. I will be starting the school year with 30 students' with disabilities ranging from Developmental Delay to Autism.

My mission as a teacher is to provide a positive, safe, engaging, and welcoming learning environment for all of my students!

Each of my students hold true potential and I never let a day go by without them knowing that!

My Project

My key focus is to provide a flexible classroom setting for my students. By doing so, I am allowing them to flex their brain muscles and remain engaged during instruction. These Flex Balance Ball Seats are exactly what my kids need to keep their body and brains moving!

My student's achievements and ability to stay focused throughout lessons have proven flexible seating to be effective in my classroom.

They love and respect the freedom to choose wisely where they learn best.

With these flex balance ball seats and inflator added to our seating options, my students will have another place where they can learn and work effectively in all group settings.
