My Students

Each of my students has their own individual challenges and needs that make learning difficult for them. All of my students are far below grade level and need lots of extra support and practice when learning new things. They are bright and active students and even though learning is hard for them, they are always willing to try and explore the materials I present to them. Learning does not come naturally to my students. Many of them struggle with just being in a chair during lessons. I have high goals and expectations for my students and love to create new and exciting ways for them to learn and explore the educational world and love learning! My students come into school expected to be failing. They are separated from their peers and labeled before their first day. But every year, they shock everyone because they are the best group of students and are so determined to learn and be successful.

My Project

These bikes will enable my students to practice their large motor skills in a fun and exciting way! Many of students have sensory needs that prevent them from accessing their learning time. These bikes would enable them to get the sensory input they need and focus on learning! Not only will these bikes, trikes and scooters help meet my students' sensory needs, they will also give my students the ability to practice and strengthen their gross motor skills. Many of my students struggle with large and gross motor and we are always looking for fun and exciting ways to build these skills.
