My Students

I have the awesome responsibility of facilitating learning in the Gifted and Talented classroom. My students are in the fifth and sixth grades. Although our county has a variety of schools, my students live in the more rural areas of our district.

Research shows gifted and talented students have special learning and social-emotional needs that need to be met in order for each student to reach their highest learning potential.

Due to the varied needs, interests, talents, gifts, and backgrounds of these students, I am responsible for providing a wide variety of learning opportunities, projects, and resources.

Gifted learners are often seen as the 'best and brightest' students in the class, and that is sometimes the case. However, some gifted students are underachievers due to unmet personal or learning needs, lack of interest in a topic, boredom, or peer pressure. It is my calling to do all I can to provide interesting and challenging learning experiences and a positive learning environment for them to reach their fullest potential.

My Project

This year, our learning unit is oceanography. We have been studying about fish, oceans, and soon will begin an intense study of the great barrier reef! What better way to study and learn with seats that sway and swivel?

Some students have proprioceptive input sensory needs to learn best, and these swiveling, swaying stools are a great way to accommodate this need for students best learning.

It also will be fun to use while learning about ocean currents in a classroom decorated as an underwater scene!

Adding these stools will make my classroom a great place to learn about our earth's oceans!
