My Students

I teach at a low-income school. The students here come from all sorts of diverse family situations. Some of my students are still working on learning English. These students are resilient. They come to school happy despite the many challenges they face.

My school embraces our diversity.

We are proud of the accomplishments and hard work of these students. We work hard to make the school a positive, nurturing environment where all students are leaders and are recognized and valued for their strengths.

My Project

My classroom has many diverse needs, especially when it comes to seating. I have many students with anxiety, ADHD, and other issues that disrupt their ability to learn on any given day. It is not uncommon for a student to crawl under a desk, wiggle in their seat, or orbit their desk as they do their work. This has been a distraction for others in my class who are able to sit still while working.

I hope to create a classroom where all students can learn while having their energy addressed in a positive way.

The standing desks, balls, stools and bouncing bands will help my "busy" students to work while addressing their wiggles. The weighted lap blanket will help those students who are anxious to feel calmer.
