My Students

I always seem to get the sweetest class ever! This up and coming school year I should have about 20 first graders.

We are an inclusion classroom, so our class includes regular education students, students with autism, and those who require special education.

My class gives students with disabilities the opportunity to learn alongside their non-disabled peers. I'm the only teacher in the classroom. My students enjoy coming to school every day. Their favorite part of the day is when they get to read a book to their teacher. Our school is located in Norfolk and is a Title I school, which means that the majority of the students come from low-income households. Our school receives free breakfast, lunch, and snack daily.

We have so much fun in my class, and the kids love to learn! Please help me to teach them in fun and engaging ways.

My Project

An uncomfortable first grader is a distracted student. Our classroom needs more comfortable places to learn. We would like two balance boards so that we can work at a standing desk comfortably. These boards will be placed at raised desk around the room. Students will have the option to use them during reading or math centers. The boards provide more cushion, and allow students to safely twist and rock back and forth.

Why should we sit still all day?

Little kids don't like to sit down.

We are tired of sitting in chairs all day. This flexible seating will allow us to wobble, rock, and fidget as we complete our work.
