My Students

My students are Iowans (Go Hawks!) grades K-2 at an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years Program. The PYP presents a balanced curriculum that emphasizes the development of five essential elements: concepts, knowledge, skills, attitude, and action.

In my special education classroom, my students and I work tirelessly on social skills, coping mechanisms, and self-regulation.

The amazing kiddos I work with have Intellectual Disabilities and/or Behavioral Disorders. However, they are so much more than these 'labels' and their potential is absolutely endless. They are smart, they are kind, and they are full of life.

My Project

My students are absolutely INCREDIBLE in every sense of the word! However, their abundance of wiggles results in difficulties with attending to academic/non-preferred tasks. Therefore, movement is incorporated into our day as much as possible.

I want to give my students every opportunity possible to reach their full potential and to set them up for success.

I truly believe that flexible seating will help in doing so because it gives my little friends an appropriate way to get their wiggles out. Consequently, this will help to increase their focus and engagement in learning. I have already seen amazing growth in my students this year, and I can only imagine the difference flexible seating would make!
