My Students

As a special education teacher in a high-poverty neighborhood, my students are faced with numerous challenges in and out of the classroom. They have disabilities ranging from developmental delays, to autism spectrum disorder, to ADHD. However, my students come to school eager to learn and “grow their brains” each day.

My students are not incapable of learning, they just need to learn differently.

Small groups of students, kindergarten through second grade, spend part of their day in my room to target gaps in their learning and receive instruction that matches their unique needs. Through these hands-on, kinesthetic, and meaningful learning opportunities, they are acquiring skills to be successful in the general education classroom.

My Project

My students are motivated to learn, but sometimes the energy in their bodies takes over! Without a healthy way to release this energy, they are unable to focus and process new information. Movement breaks and hands-on activities are embedded in my instruction to maintain student attention, but flexible seating will help them reach their full learning potential.

Wobble stools will allow my students to bounce, rock, and wobble while they work!

They will satisfy students' need to move throughout the school day and keep their young minds more alert. Rather than letting their energy take over, students will simply be able to focus on the academic content. This, in turn, will open the doors for more meaningful and productive learning.
