My Students

We all wobble but we don’t fall down! My students are resilient, optimistic, smart and full of energy! They are motivated to be RSD Proud!

Despite the many challenges my student face, I am looking to keep things invigorating and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students work hard to make their goals in creative, clever and very spontaneous ways. They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Wobble chairs will allow my students to have the flexibility to move while working on classroom tasks. Wobble chairs are designed to support students with ADHD, because they provide a physical challenge and opportunity to release energy while simultaneously working. These wobble chairs have the potential to increase engagement, focus, motivation, and school enjoyment.The purpose of having these chairs as a seating option is to enable my students to try something out to help satisfy their extra energy output. These wobble chairs will be able to be used for many years. They will help students see that we all need different things to help us learn best!
