My Students

I teach a varied level of high school students who have various intellectual, physical, and sensory impairments in our high school. Our high school has a large identified population with students coming from low income households, and their education is vitally important to me. My everyday goal is to give the students something they can walk away with and apply in their everyday lives that involves math, whether that is learning how to count change back or learning how much a sale item is: these are the life-skills they will need once they graduate high school.

Many of my students struggle daily with remaining in their seats, and staying focused and engaged, especially when our classes are 90 minutes long.

My students do not love coming to school; they do not fully immerse themselves into the learning process. Unfortunately, many of my students are facing tragedies in their home lives and are in survival mode when they are in my building.

My Project

Allowing my students the ability to have a comfortable seating environment is what will set them apart from their peers in other math classes. Giving them the ability to choose their seats in a responsible manner allows them to have choice in their learning environment. These bouncy chairs will allow my fidgety students to be somewhat active, without distracting the other students in class. Incorporating more opportunities for seating will benefit each individual student that comes into my class because they will have choice, be able to take charge of their choices which will encourage students to make good choices, otherwise they might lose their seat!
