My Students

Last year, Hurricane Harvey devastated many homes of my students. The effects of Hurricane Harvey is still being felt today by many of my kids. Currently, I have one particular student that is still homeless. I have many others that were displaced and had their vehicles and their sense of security taken away. As I monitor the kids, I am seeing that they can not process what has happened to them and, in turn, this is affecting their overall attitude.

My kids are a part of my heart.

As the new school year started one of their first questions was "Is a hurricane coming this year?" As a teacher, and as a human, this tore my heart. I want my kids to achieve and become the best they can be. I am teaching them daily to help monitor their stress levels and control their behaviors. These are some of the best kids I have had the pleasure and opportunity to work with. I just want to provide them with the tools they need to be successful in their classes.

My Project

Education is changing daily, and with that, so are traditional classrooms. PASS stands for "Positive Approach To Student Success" which is a program that caters to students with behavioral and emotional problems. As a PASS Teacher/ Behavioral Specialist, I am seeking out assistance with getting flexible seating and fidget toys for all my students inside the general education classroom. My goal is for my students to "have it all". For them to have it all each student needs a way to get out their energy inside the classroom. Items such as bouncy balls, cushion discs, foam stress balls, and so much more will assist with creating a positive classroom environment that will allow my students to learn while sitting in seating that will allow them to be the best they can be.
