My Students

As a Special Educator, I am honored to teach students in the 4th and 7th grade. Fortunately, I work in small groups with my students, providing me with the opportunity to get to know each students' individual personalities as well as their academic needs. Every day I am learning something new about my students and every day I strive to provide as many opportunities for my students in order for them to be successful, whether that be positive support or resources that gear to their needs.

My Project

Everyday I strive to help my students navigate the world around them through interactive literacy and math instruction. As a Special Education teacher, I work specifically with students who have various academic needs and are eager to learn. By incorporating these Wobble Chairs into my classroom, my students will not only be provided with physical challenges but also the opportunity to release energy while being able to focus on instruction at the same time.

Wobble Chairs are a non-distractible and interactive way to help students stay engaged while simultaneously incorporating sensory input and energy burn.

These active seating chairs will support my students by allowing them the opportunity to focus not only on their academic work, but their creativity. Wobble Chairs will also provide the opportunity for me, as a teacher, to create stronger connections with my students through increased student participation as a result of the students' stronger ability to focus. An increase in such strong and positive student teacher bonds will only further enable the success of my students both academically and emotionally.
