My Students

My students are amazing. They are curious and kind, helpful and hard-working. I teach 2nd grade at a city school. We are a diverse classroom- both economically and culturally.

Sometimes, my kids have a hard time concentrating.

One of the things that makes it difficult are flickering lights. My school also has a problem with air flow. Sometimes, the classroom is too hot, other times it's too cold. My students sometimes wear their winter coats in the classroom. All these obstacles make learning a challenge!

My Project

Last year, one student got headaches from the fluorescent lighting. Many students get annoyed by the glare on their work. Covering the existing lights with blue covers will help change the mood of the classroom to one that promotes calm and focus in students.

Another tool I think would help some students is a Wobble Chair.

This is a stool that wobbles slightly. Students can shift and move without making noises that distract those around them. They can get out nervous energy while working on their classroom tasks. Some kids have a hard time sitting in a chair. They tap or tilt; you know that is not safe... CRASH! Please help my kids by getting us Wobble Chairs and blue covers for our lights.
