My Students

This is my first full year as a Learning Support Teacher. My students are 6th, 7th and 8th graders with a variety of academic abilities. My students are part of a learning support classroom where they receive additional assistance with their classroom content. My school supports inclusion so my students are in the same classroom as their typically developing peers and then receive additional assistance, as needed, in the learning support classroom. Each student learns in their own, unique way and thrives off of positive reinforcement.

Throughout their time with me, we begin to look at what they want to do when they grow up and begin putting a plan in place to help them achieve their goal.

We attend career fairs, begin to research careers and what the requirements are to obtain that job. This will help the students to pick their high school classes and know what electives will benefit them for their career goals.

My Project

This flexible seating furniture will make a positive difference in my classroom. Students will have the option of where they would like to sit instead of everything being the same.

My students love to make their own decisions, from where they sit to what subject they want to work on first.

I chose storage ottomans to keep the options age appropriate and to give them a place to put their belongings while they are working. I chose two different end tables so the students would not have to share the table space. They can slide the tables underneath the ottomans when they are done using them to condense the amount of space they take up.
