My Students

The students in my classroom present with a variety of challenges - academically, socially and emotionally. The design of my classroom is to provide a therapeutic environment in which students can feel safe and ready to learn while working towards Every day is a different day for our students with highs and lows of varying degrees. Because of this, the students within this class need all of the benefits and assistance available through this classroom.

The focus for each student when they enter the classroom is to stabilize, show self control and work towards returning to the general education setting.

Students are assigned to the Transitional Learning Center classroom for social and emotional support. Students utilize the classroom as needed or on a scheduled basis throughout each day. School adjustment counselors are available to facilitate the teaching of social and interpersonal skills. For some students, building emotional intelligence learning how to use these coping skills, can take weeks and even months to master. By using various curricula and integrated services, we help children grades 3-7 meet their academic expectations, support individuality, while meeting their social and emotional needs.

My Project

Flexible seating options help students increase concentration and remain focused on learning. My students are often allowed to choose where they sit to learn and this standing desk and stool will give them another option to help keep them engaged in the classroom.

Flexible seating of all types provide a healthy alternative in the learning environment.

Over these past several years as flexible seating has become more a part of the classroom I have noticed a difference in my students. I want to continue with this healthy option and continue to make these changes within the classroom one flexible seat at a time. I am asking for a standing desk, a stool and some clipboards.
