My Students

My students are in an inclusion classroom where many of them have special needs. Academic levels range from kindergarten to seventh grade in one room. Although this can be challenging, it is also incredibly rewarding.

In addition to special needs, English is the second language for many of them, which can prevent my students from learning from their peers who speak English fluently.

Oftentimes, my students are the only English speakers in their household. They need positive interaction with their peers to discuss assignments.

My students come from diverse backgrounds with various economic privileges. Due to these differences, my students are often unable to meet after school to collaborate on projects. Their parents' hectic work schedule or lack of transportation often affects my students' ability to study effectively at home. Despite their differences and/or challenges, my students amaze me every day. They deserve the best education and support that will allow them to reach their highest potential.

My Project

Most adults find it difficult to sit for long periods of time without losing focus and motivation. Children have tons of energy and movement is essential to their learning. They are built to move and and stretch at all times. Sitting in chairs for hours at a time is hard for anyone - especially 10 and 11 year olds.

My students need a standing table to complete their in-class tasks and assignments to keep them motivated and focused.

Having this table will allow my students an opportunity to move while they work. This adjustable height table will enhance their learning experience each and every day.
