My students are low income, military students. They have transitional lifestyles and many have difficulty focusing in class.
We have high instances of students with special needs because we are an exceptional family member location for the military.
That means it replaces an overseas tour for our families who have children with special needs. We are 100% military students.
They also deal with the deployment of parents, parents with traumatic brain injuries, and emotional issues that other schools do not have to address. I love my kids!!
I have been working on making my classroom a better learning environment for my students. In the past year I have been getting more flexible seating and it has made a huge difference with my kids.
These bean bag chairs would make another great place for my students to work and be comfortable.
Students learn better when they are comfortable and feel safe.
The privacy partitions will help my students focus. Many of my students have ADHD, Autism, or other learning disabilities. They need a place to have privacy so they can concentrate. It will benefit them during test taking as well
