My Students

I am a kindergarten SpEd teacher at a small-town elementary school. It is a K-6 building serving about 750 students. There are five kindergarten sections with an average of about 100 students throughout the grade level.

As a resource teacher my job is to provide instruction to all students with an IEP, co-teach with my colleagues, and also provide RtI.

Because of this I am able to impact the education of several students each year.

I work hard at creating an inviting and fun atmosphere so that my students will enjoy every moment they spend in my classroom. I firmly believe that learning needs to be fun in order to keep students engaged. I am currently using student chairs that are fifty years old, and while they work they don't provide my students with the physical movement that five year old children desperately need.

My Project

Struggling students often do not enjoy school and feel inferior to their peers. My goal is to help prevent any child from feeling that way because of their academic struggles. Through creating a fun and inviting learning environment I believe I have provided my students with an atmosphere that is most conducive to learning.

Students also need movement to maximize their learning.

These Hokki stools will provide an excellent flexible seating option for those students that have difficulty sitting still. In addition, students find them to be very fun. Because of the movement these stools provide, students are more engaged and focused on learning. I want nothing more than to help build a strong foundation for my students to have a positive outlook on their school career.
