My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

Some of the students in my classroom are students with learning and emotional disabilities.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

There are some amazing special needs students in my class who need flexible seating in order to help aid in their concentration while working and learning in the classroom. Some students have trouble staying still and can be little wiggle worms at times. Others actually need the ability to move around freely in the classroom. These chairs will also help those students be able to move more freely and easily around in the classroom. It will also help get those jitters out and keep students focused on learning while they wiggle while they work. The educational rugs will bring more movement and extra space for flexible learning. Flexible and accommodating seating would be amazing for my kiddos!
