My Students

I have a classroom of 25 fifth graders from many different types of households. Our school is a Title I school, serving students from a rural community as well as students from low-income families. I teach math to a diverse group of students, many with special needs.

My students are eager to learn, love being in class, and are full of life and energy.

However, sometimes this energy can hinder the learning process for some of my students. It is my mission to provide the best possible educational experience for my students.

My Project

Fidget bands promote a sense of calm for students with restless legs, anxiety or nervous energy. Having an outlet gives the students a sense of calm and enables them to focus. These bands would a perfect way to quietly release nervous energy while remaining focused on learning. Stack stools will provide more room to work in an overcrowded classroom. These stools will give my students more space to move and release some of this nervous energy without disrupting the learning process for themselves and others.

Providing students with more room to move and work, as well as a way to release their nervous energy will positively impact them academically, personally, and physically.
