Wobble and Focus!

My students need wobble chairs to help them learn more efficiently.

My Students

As a self-contained Emotional Support teacher in an urban school district, my students are faced with a variety of challenges in their daily life. So many have experienced trauma in their lives but still come to school wanting to learn and try their best.

The students in my classroom have emotional and learning disabilities.

My class serves students with Emotional Disturbances, Autism, Intellectual Disabilities, Specific Learning Disabilities and Other Health Impairments.

Our school has approximately 700 students where all receive free lunch. Most of my students display behaviors that prevent them from participating in regular education classes throughout the day. From the moment they walk into my classroom each morning, my goal is to provide them with a positive, structured, loving environment where they feel safe, cared for, and encouraged to strive to reach their potential.

They are great kids who can make a positive difference in this world, if they're just given a chance.

My Project

Wiggly, distracted, and eager to learn is how I would describe the majority of my students!

My students often have a difficult time sitting still and focusing on their work.

I believe these wobble chairs will help my students get the physical input they need without having to move around the classroom and distracting their peers. They will be able to focus more and attend to their learning.

As their teacher, I have found that novel items and the ability to mix things up and keep the class interesting is the best way to keep their motivation high. With your donation, 4 students at a time will be able to experience learning in a different way using these wobble chairs.
