My Students

My students are lively and energetic pre-adolescents. Middle school is an adventure where my students are acquiring academic skills and building good study habits in a backdrop of high drama in the South Bronx. They are learning to deal with friendships while learning about social studies, English Language Arts, science, math, art, and computer science.

They are transitioning from children to young adults.

Our school provides them with a safe space to learn and grow. We have guidance counselors that follow them from grades 6 through 12. We also have Margaret's Place, a program founded by Joe Torre, the former manager of the New York Yankees as a dedicated safe room in schools where students can go to talk or “hang out” in a comfortable environment that feels safe to them.

My Project

I am a Special Education teacher and many of my students learn by non-traditional methods. This includes flexible seating that allows them to move and fidget in their seats. The Hokki stools will reduce their time spent moving around the room when they should stay seated at desks for table work.

Sensory issues are another focus for my students.

Traditional pen on paper note-taking is not particularly effective for most of my students. Many appreciate tactile forms of learning. They will be able to construct 3-dimensional forms of structures we are learning about in math and science with the Mad Mattr Sensory dough and the Crayola Model Magic.
