My Students

My students exhibit severe and pervasive emotional and behavioral disabilities which affect overall psychological and academic functioning over a long period of time. Our students love to learn and are thrilled with any new additions that are brought to the classroom. They feel like our environment is their 2nd home. With nearly all of the students coming from low-income households, they are appreciative of everything they get. The smile on their faces is worth a million dollars!

The students in the Social Emotional Behavioral Supports Program (SEBS) consistently demonstrate social emotional behavioral and psychological functioning that impedes academic progress.

My Project

It is imperative that the environment in which children receive their education is as conducive to learning as it can be. However, this is not always as easy as it should be, as the diverse needs of children, as well as the demands made on teachers, sometimes makes it very hard to adapt a classroom to suit differing educational needs.

Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused and productive.

The supplies requested will assist our students in becoming successful scholars. Making sure students are comfortable and away from distraction is an essential component in motivating them.

I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. The dividers will allow my students to stay focused. These handy privacy screens are very easy to move so they can be used to effectively partition a classroom in a matter of minutes.

It is imperative that the environment in which children receive their education is as conducive to learning as it can be. The listening center will enhance our students' love of reading while improving their vocabulary and fluency.
