My Students

Kind, creative, resilient, and enthusiastic are a few words that describe my students. I have the privilege to teach kindergarten at a title one elementary school. My classroom has a diverse set of backgrounds and includes English language learners, special education students, and those receiving free breakfast and lunch.

My students come to school each morning eager to learn with a smile despite their challenges at home.

My students love reading stories, completing hands on projects, and playing with each other. Watching them learn and grow as individuals throughout the year is truly amazing!

My Project

We are in need of a new rug for our classroom to use during story time, calendar, and whole group lessons. This new rug will also provide a comfortable space for students to complete math and literacy activities on; including puzzles and hands on games. My students spend most of their day on the rug learning and would love a comfortable and inviting space to sit on.

Having this new classroom rug will help to foster a safe and comfortable learning environment.

Each student will have their own square which will minimize distraction and provide students with optimal chances to learn!
