My Students

I love my students! They are resilient, funny, and respectful. How many cities do you know of where the majority of high school students still say "yes ma'am or no sir" and hold the door open for adults and each other?

I would like to provide my students with the tools they need to help them concentrate and experience success in our classroom.

The pros to being in a small school? EVERY student REALLY does matter.

My students have been through a lot this year with Hurricane Harvey and deserve the very best of me and whatever I am able to get for them.

My Project

Just because students have learning disabilities and/or special education circumstances doesn't mean they automatically have to be a discipline issue. Flexible seating and special education supplies will make our classroom a place where students have the opportunity to experience learning and success.

After observing many classrooms I realize that we do not have the modern-day resources or the flexible seating needed to help our ADHD/ADD/Special Education students concentrate and focus.

By modern-day I am referring to things like preferable lighting that has been known to create a calm setting and reduce anxiety. Stand-up desks and desk bands can be used to help students focus by having a means to release energy while simultaneously working. Fidget hand-held tools are used to keep children focused on what is being taught or the work that is presented to them. Believe it or not, they are able to concentrate better by having a productive way to fidget. These tools take the place of what looks like disruptive behavior, and can be disruptive, but what is really uncontrollable and spontaneous behavior.

I have students who have been classified or diagnosed with multiple learning disabilities. All these students are brilliant and have brilliant ideas. By using these tools we can arm them with ideas to use as adults.
