My Students

I work with a group of students who are passionate for learning and that work very hard to overcome obstacles that life has thrown at them. We live in a small town where differences are celebrated and everyone is included.

In my resource room, I have 16 students buzzing in and out throughout the day.

They use their abilities to overcome their disabilities. These disabilities range from autism, intellectual delays, specific learning disabilities, speech and langue deficits, emotional and behavioral disabilities, to other health impairments.

In my classroom, I teach and modify my instruction to the way they learn. My students’ receive specially designed reading, writing, and math interventions as well as social skills from me every day. My classroom is about building skills that my students might be missing or improving upon areas that they struggle with such as reading comprehension, math application, and social skills. My goal is to build these skills so my students can stay in the general education classroom and remain as independent as possible while at school.

These kids struggle but never give up. Their passion for learning drives my desire and love for teaching.

My Project

My students’ love to learn, they just learn a little bit differently than the average student. They learn best when they are calm, focused, and comfortable. Some days this can be a nearly impossible task with the traditional seating that is meant for the traditional learner. It is like fitting a heart-shaped key into a traditional key and lock. You cannot simply unlock the door to learning without the right key! My students’ can find it nearly impossible to sit still some days.

A traditional chair can turn dangerous quickly when they start to tip it backward.

Having a ball chair allows them to move around safely while being able to attend to lessons. We need flexible seating such as beanbags, ball chairs, T-stool, stools for our standing table, and fidget chair bands, so we can make the best choice for our learning at that moment.

The special lighting will help my students remain calm and focused. It helps students who are sensitive to light due to sensory aversions.

Please help set my students’ up for success by allowing them to work in their most successful environment.
