My Students

My 2nd grade classroom is made up of twenty diverse and inspiring learners. Students come from a wide range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Our school is located in one of the most historically impoverished communities in San Francisco, but these students are resilient and passionate about learning. They come to school every day excited to see what topics they'll be exploring. Our school is dedicated to providing services and opportunities that serve the whole child, their family, and their community.

My Project

Students bring in stress from the outside to class everyday. These students need tools to help them feel and do their best. Some students need to wiggle and move, while others need peace and quiet. In our class we currently share 2 headphones and 2 wobble cushions between 18 learners. These tools are always in high demand! My students are great at sharing, but wouldn't it be amazing if everyone had access to what they needed to succeed?

Students who have access to these tools are better able to self-regulate and stay focused.

Learners who need extra quiet can pop on the headphones to cut outside distractions. Learners who need some extra movement or sensory stimulation can grab a wobble cushion. By providing a wide range of options, students will always have access to what they need in order to focus and do their best.
