My Students

My students are hard working students that have learning differences and need alternative seating to offer a more appropriate option than the traditional seating arrangements. They are high energy and always eager to learn. Despite the hardships that they face once leaving school, they are always ready and willing to do their best with a positive and upbeat attitude.

My students continue to make me proud everyday with their fortitude and determination to overcome many obstacles that stand in their way.

Their stories can be motivation for others.

My Project

My students will benefit from this project by having an alternative to the traditional learning environment. They have learning differences and need to have seating that meets their needs. It is hard for them to regulate their sensory needs in the traditional seating options. These alternative seats will help them with their sensory needs while allowing them to continue learning new material. They can wiggle and stay engaged on completing their assignments at the same time. An added bonus is that they will be using a lot of their excess energy to stay balanced in the chair that they will be able to focus even better!
