My Students

My district serves students that come from low-income households. 85% of the student population in our building is Hispanic, and for a lot of them English is their second language. All of our students receive a free and/or reduced price breakfast and lunch. Some students don't come to school with backpacks. In the winter, some students don't come to school with jackets, gloves, scarves, etc.

They still love to learn.

Our school is their "home away from home" and I, as their teacher, owe them a fun, valuable, memorable education while they are students in my classroom. I feel grateful to work with such an amazing population of students!

My Project

Being a special education teacher, I know that my students learn best in their own, unique way. It's time to ditch the old-school student desks and provide free choice seating options for my unique learners!

The goal of this project is to allow my students to be in control of their own learning and find a way that makes it comfortable for them to do that.

Giving them various options of seating within the classroom will help foster a student-centered learning environment. I am hoping that giving my students different options of seating within the classroom will also boost their motivation and engagement!
