My Students

I teach in a self-contained special education classroom of 12 children with mild to moderate disabilities, from Kinder through 2nd grade. My goal is to give my students the best opportunities for learning I possibly can. The kids are taught grade level standards using a variety of methods and they work very hard every day.

My student are very capable young people and can do much more than people realize, and they love to learn.

They are creative, impulsive, and funny.

My Project

Many of my students have a difficult time focusing, and sitting in a chair, being still is not easy. The wobble chairs and wobble cushions will enable the kids to be comfortable while learning because they can wobble and wiggle when they need to.

The kids will be so excited with the pillows!

They will be able to sit or lay on them while they read their favorite book to their reading buddy daily. Each student has a stuffed animal and this is their reading buddy they read to each day. For my nonverbal kids, this is incredible! They talk!
