My Students

My name is Ms. Dobrzynski and I am a special education teacher in Richmond, Ky. My classroom is a highly structured classroom, which means it is filled with the most lovable, but also the most distracted students in the school. In my classroom, my students receive instruction in reading, writing, math, and social skills.

Each of my students has a KY individualized education plan, with disabilities in the area of either autism or emotional behavior disability.

My kiddos need the highly structured environment in order to be successful, because the general education setting is too stimulating for them to handle. It is my job to help them be the most successful they can be and I take that job very seriously.

They are each unique and have so many wonderful qualities that make my job the best there is. I love going to work every day and the main reason is because of the wonderful, little humans that teach me something new each and every day. Please consider helping our classroom of learners be the most successful they can be!

My Project

Research shows that students with autism spectrum disorder and emotional and behavioral disabilities, often times have ADHD as well. Each of my students has more than one diagnosis and ADHD is one that causes them the most struggle during times of instruction.

My kiddos need to be able to move often during the school day, and times of instruction and learning are no different for them.

Flexible seating allows them to be able to wiggle and move, as needed, and therefore focus on their learning and work.

This seating will allow them to safely move as often as they need to, without disrupting those around them. I believe that the options of flexible seating I have selected for them will allow them to be able to focus in the classroom as well as be the most successful in their learning.
