My Students

Having the most diverse classroom both culturally and educationally comes with its own set of challenges. I teach a blended 1st grade class, with both ELL and non-ELL students in it. I also have students with IEPs. My students' language abilities range from native English speakers to newcomers with limited English abilities.

Walking into my classroom is like walking into the world.

My students are full of wonder and are incredibly inquisitive about the world around them. But they need support to be as successful as they can be.

My Project

These Wobble chairs will have a huge impact on my first grade students. I have students who struggle with being able to focus on what is happening in the classroom because they have the wiggles. I have one of these chairs in my classroom and I have seen the impact that it has had on the one student who has the chair from the school Occupational Therapist.

I can' wait to see how these chairs can impact the learning of my students.

These chairs will be able to help students who don't have an OT bringing them tools to help with their learning.
