My Students

I teach 17 special education students with disabilities ranging from Autism to ADHD to Dyslexia to Speech and Language impairments. These determined students persevere through any challenges they may face, to thrive in a general education setting with their non-disabled, same-age peers. Our school is committed to diversity and inclusion. and we deliver rigorous instruction and have high expectations for all our students. Though our special education students receive various accommodations, they fit seamlessly into our community of global learners and future global leaders. I can't wait to see their impact on the world!.

My Project

These items will provide the right seating for students receiving instruction in the special education resource room. There many benefits to alternative seating in the classroom including (1) better attention/focus, (2) less restlessness, and (3) increased participation. Also, physical activity is correlated with higher academic performance, better overall health, and improved behavior. These sensory cushions, wobbly stools, and chair kick bands will help support students with movement and attention needs to be even more successful in their classroom. Additionally, "flexible seating" provides students with additional benefits such as (1) choice - Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment and, (2) comfort. The Right Seating = Greater Success! for our students.
