My Students

We are an integrated collaborative teaching (ICT) first-grade class, with a mixture of general and special education students at a large high-needs, Title I school in the Bronx. Although the majority of students come from low-income homes or from homes with limited parental involvement, they are enthusiastic and come to school every day ready to learn. These children see school as a consistent part of their daily lives and strive daily to make me proud.

My 22 first graders are some of the happiest children I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

Many struggle with various disabilities, such as ADHD, autism, and speech and language impairments. They inspire me to provide the best education I can for them.

My Project

Aa special educator, I realize the importance of finding accommodations that benefits my little learners. I have extensively researched the benefits of portable lap desks, and I believe these flexible seating options will help and motivate my special education students, especially those with ADHD.

Sometimes the traditional desk and chair seating arrangement is a deterrent for children with special needs.

Being able to work on their independent reading or writing skills wherever they desire with the support of a desk motivates them. These portable lap desks are small enough to be transported easily anywhere within the classroom so students can access them independently. These options are great because it allows students to become self aware of their own learning and give them the option to work elsewhere to better focus and concentrate.
