My Students

I am a Special Education Teacher in an integrated/co-taught classroom of twenty wonderful children! The children are from a small community, which allows for a family oriented classroom feel. This being an integrated classroom, the learning style of each student is unique and I as the Special Education Teacher am determined to create the best learning environment for all types of learners.

The students that I teach need regular movement throughout each lesson in order to maintain focus and learn to the best of their abilities.

That is why I am so very passionate about wishing for this flexible seating donation!

My Project

Studies have proven that struggling learners, especially those with ADHD and other learning disabilities increase their ability to learn and focus when provided with opportunities to move while learning in the classroom.

Flexible seating is a great way to allow this!

Students can stand at a podium, wobble on a wobble stool, or sit on the floor with a writing tray, etc. Teaching days of students sitting in rows of desks are over. Today's children need movement and choices. With your help and donations, my students can benefit from these new seating options and take learning to a whole new level!
