My Students

Hello! I am a resource teacher at a junior high school. The special education students at our school are included in the general education classroom. I attend the classes with them, as a group, to support their learning and work with the teacher to achieve positive outcomes.

If you would like to help our inclusion class enhance the learning outcomes which will last a lifetime please donate today!

Your donation will help and is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

My Project

For students who need sensory input. We all need this. Activities that let us know where our body is in time and space. As adults, we have figured out socially appropriate ways to do this- twiddling our foot up and down, shifting in our seat and so on. We need to help students figure out how to engage in this – it helps them pay attention. Padding their chairs, putting therapy banding between the two front chair legs and teaching the students how to bounce their feet up and down on the banding, how to shift in their seats will help keep them seated and paying attention.

There should be some kind of cushion on the chair.

Especially little boys whose tailbones have no pocket of fat between their tailbone and the hard surface we are asking them to sit on. This is also true for the students with ADHD, Sensory Integration Disorder, and/or Autism.
