My Students

Our integrated co-teacher classroom is full of 19 excited and curious second graders! We have a diverse group of learners in NYC! Our students present with a variety of special needs, including hearing loss, speech and language delays, and physical delays.

Our students come from all five boroughs and are predominantly children of deaf adults.

Our classroom is rich in the use of ASL as well as other languages. This is a wonderful class coming into second grade and they deserve the best that second grade has to offer them!

My Project

By providing my students with flexible seating, I will provide them with multiple opportunities to listen and learn. My students are an active bunch and struggle to focus while sitting at a table or a rug. They have a variety of social, language, and physical disabilities.

My students have a strong desire to learn.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. The use of flexible seating allows me to arrange my classroom based on my student's individual needs. With access to flexible seating, I hope to promote active listening and learning within my classroom!
