My Students

Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." In our classroom, we are preparing our class to fight for a better world. My students are special education students in RSP/SDC placement. They are some of the most eager learners I have ever had the privilege of working with. My students bring enthusiasm with them everyday. This is evident in their thirst for knowledge and their desire to be in school each day. These are incredible students who deserve the opportunity to explore their dreams and abilities through the use of innovative lessons, real-life problem solving opportunities, and individual educational goal achievement.

My favorite part of the day is when someone walks into the room and sees my students striving to learn more, be more, and do more than the typical twenty-first century student.

I have students with dreams of becoming computer programmers, graphic designers, nurses, doctors, welders, educators, professional athletes, and much more! Their motivation to succeed is contagious, and with the help of donors, we can help them reach these goals and discover even more along the way.

My Project

My students need Balance Chair, HOVR Under Desk Leg Swing within the classroom. They are in need of the choice to move around and wiggle to be more successful. Our classroom is transitioning to flexible seating to give students increased options for comfort, work style, and movement within the classroom. Students are able to learn more when they have more options for comfort. One of the biggest things that makes an impact on students with special needs is the ability to move around while they work. Using the wobble stools and the under the desk foot swing, students will have the option to move and increase their focus. Students that can shift their weight on the stool or swing their feet will be able to get their wiggling done while working on their academics. Studies have shown that students who are moving in new ways retain the information when the motion is repeated. Having any tools that will increase their knowledge retention is a great tool! My students work very hard, but are limited by no fault of their own.
