My Students

Our students come from various neighborhoods within our school district. They speak more than twenty-seven languages including English, Spanish, Bulgarian, Russian, Japanese, Tagalog and Arabic. Twenty percent of our students qualify for a free or reduced cost breakfast and lunch.

Our students are diverse with many students excelling in academics, athletics and artistic endeavors, as well as struggling with various disabilities including intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism spectrum disorder and specific learning disabilities.

Our primary social focus is community building and character education.

Regardless of where our students come from, they deserve to be successful. Our school is their home and our tight-knit community works closely together to see that all students have the chance and the materials to learn and grow. Our students are amazing! They dream and think and question, always wondering about the world around them. They are the scientists, inventors, authors, artists, mathematicians and visionaries of tomorrow. By fostering an environment of collaboration, community, healthy competition and risk-taking, we are building a future that will make us proud.

My Project

My students enjoy many alternative seating options in our classroom. We have ball chairs and wobble stools and these options really help my students focus. I have many students that have attention challenges and focus issues. These accommodations make such a difference.

Learning is so much easier and productive when students are provided with the tools they need to be successful.

These stools provide another option for students who don't want to wobble or bounce but want to be able to sit comfortably for long periods of time. These stools are lightweight, sturdy and comfortable.

School days are long and unfortunately students are asked to sit for a significant part of their day. I have two of these stools in my classroom right now and I am seeing amazing results. My students are more focused, more comfortable and more productive. Please consider helping me to provide more of these seating opportunities to more of my students. It will change our world.
