My Students

I am a fifth grade teacher in Queens, NY and am fortunate enough to work with spectacular students who are so full of spirit and excitement for learning. I work with students from a wide range of social, emotional, and economic backgrounds. My students have varying learning needs, and each student requires different academic resources in order to attain grade level standards. I want to provide them with the items they need in order to help maximize their learning potential.

My Project

Many of the students in my class have special needs or are English Language Learners. They have been working very hard to learn to work in a quiet and focused environment throughout the day.

Many of my students suffer from severe anxiety and attention deficit challenges.

Loud noise offsets these issues and makes learning extremely difficult for them.

My students are always up and about the classroom and movement around the room is commonplace. They are always rotating around and working in small groups. The loud sounds of the screeching chairs disturb the entire class, the classroom underneath us, and provoke anxiety in the students with learning challenges. The noise level in our classroom can get very high with the harsh, loud sounds of metal chairs scraping across the floor.

During our educational time together, especially during collaborative work, the sound of chairs scratching on the floor can be very disruptive. These chair socks will help minimize the loud noise in our classroom and promote concentration. This is a very urgent need as many of my students suffer from learning challenges.
