Like most schools our students vary in ability, socioeconomic backgrounds, and cultures. In my classes, I have students who range from below grade level to above grade level. They work well together and are striving for excellence every day. We have a remediation class period where students come to get help if they are struggling with the content. They come to this class period eager to better understand the material so they can be successful. We also have an after-school program where students can come to get help.
I want my students to have every opportunity to be successful not only at the level I teach but in their future classes as well.
Our school is on a block schedule. I have many students who struggle to sit still for an entire 80 minute time period. Some of them need to be able to move to stay focused. If they have chairs that allow them to move while still working they can stay focused and be more successful.
I have many students diagnosed with ADHD and need the option of being able to move while they work so they can release some of their energy.
I feel these chairs give them that option and will help them be more successful in my class!
