My Students

My students are 14 wonderful little people who light up my life. All of them have IEPs and have some type of mental or physical disability, but that doesn't define who they are.

These future little professionals don't let their disabilities limit them in what they do and how far we go on a daily basis.

Their confidence and their ambition to overcome their obstacles in life give others who work around them the motivation to keep striving in their own endeavors.

Every student learns differently. I believe as a society we are beginning to see more and more studies that prove this. Everything from the way we learn, to the way we write, right down to the preference of seating in the classroom. Some students do better standing, while others enjoy flexible seating (ie- bean bags, yoga ball chairs), and other would rather be moving. This doesn't mean that they are not all actively engaged in learning. They are just doing it in a different way. These new additions would be able to address those students who benefit from movement while learning and would be a great new resource for our classroom. Also, giving them an outlet for sensory.

My Project

My classroom is lacking on flexible seating for students with disabilities who need to move while learning. Also , we are in need of sensory friendly classroom materials to try to meet the input needs of students in hopes to avoid behavior issues. These materials will be used while working and as well as a reward system throughout the day. Students have to be seated on the floor for while group, however students with sensory needs will need alternate seating in order to be able to focus on the lesson rather than the impulses of the desired sensory input. Thank you for your consideration.
