I love seeing the success students have when they start to feel confident in themselves. Sometimes the smallest solution can make the biggest difference, and each day our team works to find creative ways to motivate and support our students. One of the biggest challenges for my students is staying on task and staying focused. A parent approached me about buying a standing desk for her son, but they were expensive, so I spent the summer trying to redesign the desks we had to be standing desks. Our equipment request was for the project materials we needed to convert our desks, so now the students will be able choose to sit on the stools, or stand and have the foot swing as an additional way of releasing their energy and staying on task.
