My Students

I teach at a Title I school in New Hampshire where there are 22 different languages spoken. The students and their families come from countries all around the world. My school is located in a city suffering the side effects from drugs, gangs, and violence. Many of my students come to school to escape that world.

As their teacher, I intend to make each student feel safe and comfortable in the classroom environment.

Our school is a place where students feel that they belong because of the support and encouragement they receive. My goal is to build a classroom community where my students feel cared for and welcomed each day they walk through the door.

My Project

Having cube chairs in our classroom will give the students a place to sit at the rug. The cube chairs are helpful for students who do not have spacial awareness and need some help with it. The sides of the chair also help the students stay in their seats, giving them boundaries that they may not be able to establish on their own.

All my students come to school each day for a safe and comfortable place to learn.

It is my hope that I can make this easier for them by providing them with noise reducing headphones. Some students are not able to verbalize that the noise level during some times of the day is overwhelming for them. Sometimes they will act out, or shut down because they simply cannot handle the noise. The noise reducing headphones really help in dulling the background noise and allowing them to focus on what is important in class.
