My Students

What makes my students special? Simply put, they are middle schoolers - the most unique and diverse types of students. Every day is different, new, and challenging with them.

In the short five years I have worked with middle schoolers, I have learned so much from my students.

At the same time, they can be funny and annoying, happy and sad, loud and quiet, needy and independent, helpful and stubborn, and intriguing and exasperating. There is never a dull moment.

My Project

Concentrate! Focus! Stay on task! Sit still! These are things students hear constantly throughout the day. Kids need to fidget for a variety of reasons.

I want to provide an environment where my students can keep their bodies active while their brains are learning.

These bouncy bands and fidget toys will help my students stay moving and learn at the same time. Students will be able to focus more on their work and will not be so disruptive of others when they are given a way to move, wiggle or fidget. This will lead to better concentration and more improved learning.
