My Students

My students some of the most creative and innovative students in my school. They are dedicated and hardworking children. They are always pushing the limits of education. They challenge me as much as I challenge them. They push me to be the best I can be as well as pushing themselves to constantly learn more.

These students are from a rural area in Florida and we do not have a lot but what the children have is a patriotism and love for their town and the people of their community.

We are a Title I school, but we do not get the funding that other Title I schools receive because we are just slightly over the requirements set to receive funding.

My Project

I am in a general education classroom with some students who are on ADHD medication and they have trouble staying focused unless they are moving around. The typical classroom chair is not safe for my students. These alternative forms of seating will allow my students to move and be safe, but also allow them to focus better. So many times in the past few months I have noticed that students have so much trouble focusing on learning. They need many movement breaks and sometimes even that is not enough. There has been a push to offer flexible seating arrangements in classrooms. From everything I have seen and read, this has made a huge positive impact on attention and student learning. I would love a chance to offer this opportunity to my students using the balance balls. This will give them a chance to be comfortable, select a working space, and be able to move. I am confident this will improve our learning environment!
