My Students

I teach a miraculous group of 2nd-grade students. I work in a Title I school, which means that a large portion of our students have financial concerns at home and require free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

I work in an inclusion classroom which means that I teach many Special Education students as well as General Education students.

My kids have needs varying from basic phonics skills to reading comprehension and everything in between. I also work with students that have behavioral issues.

Many of my students understand that they need a little extra help to grasp concepts; however, they also understand that they can get there if they try. I'm so proud of how hard my kiddos work, and I want to offer them engaging activities to help make learning fun and easy.

My Project

I teach in an inclusion classroom. I have many students with special needs and some that just have focus issues. Flexible seating is one tool that I like to utilize to encourage responsible movent while still being able to focus on a task. For many students, the ability to be able to have free movement is the difference between failure and success. If I can offer students flexible seating and responsible movement options as a means to successfully focusing then they will be more likely to reach their full potential. Please consider helping me give my students the ability to move and focus!
