My Students

My students face various challenges each day as they overcome different disabilities and impairments. However, these do not define my students! They are joyful, loving, and enthusiastic to learn.

Each day they defy the odds and come to school eager to learn, continuing to amaze many with their gifts and talents.

My students deserve a classroom environment that is warm and welcoming to all of their beautiful minds and growing needs! This project will open many learning opportunities for my incredible students!

My Project

Flexible seating is a way for students to have control of their learning and their learning environment. Imagine sitting in a hard plastic chair all day.... boring right?

Flexible seating will allow for more engagement from my students but also be an outlet for the students that become overstimulated and frustrated.

My students have various obstacles to overcome each day. They deserve a classroom environment that meets each individual need they have while allowing them an encouraging learning environment. Students will be able to move throughout the classroom and learn in a location that is fitting for them. Students will be able to collaborate easier with each other but also work alone if needed with the use of flexible seating.
