My Students

My school is located in Hampstead, NC. We are part of an amazing, coastal community. We have a diverse group of talented students with varied interests.

I teach reading, writing, and social studies twice each day.

During this time, we follow a co-teaching inclusion model with an EC teacher pushing into the classroom. We focus on guided reading and writing, reading stations, small group instruction, and hands-on learning experiences while integrating technology.

The students I teach range from students with individualized educational plans, 504 plans, general education students, and academically and intellectually gifted students. It is an exciting challenge to teach such a wide range of young learners in a dynamic learning environment.

My Project

Wobble seats allow for students who might otherwise find it difficult to sit in a traditional classroom seat to engage core muscles, and make quiet movements, while reading, writing, lisening and actively engaging in learning. Wobble seats will be used daily in our classroom to give students a flexible seating option. These seats enable fidgety studets to move WHILE focusing on learning all while minimizing distractions to other students. In a co-teaching classroom full of diverse learners with a wide range of abilities and needs, from students with individualized educational plans, to academically gifted learners, these wobble seats will be a wonderful new option for seating in our learning community.
