One of the biggest challenges in my classroom is helping my students become independent members of society. As a special education teacher, one of my goals each year is to help my students learn and retain the necessary skills needed to function outside of school.
I work in a special education classroom with students who have cognitive impairments.
I want my students to have as many enriching learning experiences as possible while in my classroom. Students come ready to learn and are generally eager to engage in projects. My students bring so much joy to my day. They all have IEPs and are working hard towards their goals on a daily basis. My students love having a daily routine, love seeing their friends at school, and want to please their teachers. We are certainly a team. Our school is a safe environment where students are allowed to take risks and are encouraged to stand out and stand up for one another. I have been working at my school for 13 years, and I absolutely love my job. I have the best team, the best students, and I am honored to work here.
My students recently received 12 wobble chairs in my most recent DonorsChoose.org project and they LOVE them. Some students love them so much that they bring them to other rooms within our program. Other teachers and administration who come to my room always remark on the unique seating; they can all see the positive change these chairs make for my students.
The wobble chairs are used every day in my room, and my students have been able to concentrate better since they have opportunities to move while learning.
I am requesting two more wobble chairs to add to my collection so that students can have more flexibility in having alternative seating in other classrooms within our program.
Thank you for helping my classroom be the best it can be.
