My Students

I work with five classes of incredible eighth-grade students. They are funny, enthusiastic, and eager to learn. We are a very diverse school in a quickly growing area in Lakewood, Colorado.

To quote one student, "We are different, fun, energetic, and special!" Our students are motivated to work and are able to turn the simplest project into a great learning adventure.

Many students, although motivated, are behind on state reading testing. We are very focused on helping every student reach and, hopefully, surpass grade-level expectations.

My classes are team-taught classes, which allows every special education the opportunity for inclusion. This requires many accommodations which benefit every student in the class. I am working to create a classroom which is set up to reach every student and every learning style.

My Project

Student learning styles vary dramatically. Some need a quiet area to learn. Some need to physically manipulate the materials to learn. Some must move to learn. These kinesthetic learners have been told to sit still for too long. It is time to move.

Students need seating options that allow them to move!

Have you ever sat for hours on a hard plastic chair? No one should! I would love to give my students the opportunity to sit on a yoga ball (attached to a base for security) or stand on a rolling board. This will help complete my classroom makeover. I want every student to walk into my room and find the perfect spot for them to learn. Let's make learning comfortable!
