My Students

Kindergarten is such an exciting time for students and families. While some students are learning to read, write, and count, others are learning to hold a pencil and turn the pages of a book. Each class brings new adventures and new challenges.

Our class is a community of learners who love and support one another in our successes and our struggles.

Our school is nestled in an amazing community that values education and supports families in many ways. We have seen tremendous growth in the 18 years I have taught here--I teach in a wing of nine kindergarten classrooms! With the growth that we have experienced, our district has been financially stressed. Our budget for classroom supplies and teacher salaries hasn't grown alongside the growth of our district.

My Project

Over 18 years in my school, I have seen many changes in our curriculum and instruction, in the diversity of school population, and in the sensory needs of the students I teach.

Students are coming to school with a variety of sensory needs that a traditional classroom setting cannot address.

Many students struggle to sit still at their seat and on our carpet area. They have a need for constant motion or sensory input. The seats and tools that I have requested will provide students the opportunity to move without disrupting the learning of others. Most students are self-aware and can choose an alternative seating option to increase their engagement and participation.

These are tools for learning. They are not toys. They are essential for a growing group of students who arrive at school with sensory processing issues. Many of the "negative behaviors" that these students display are actually attempts to SEEK sensory input.

When this project is funded, it will provide the tools necessary for these students to succeed in the classroom setting.
