My Students

My students are a vibrant group of inquisitive little kids. They have a natural thirst for knowledge and are full of enthusiasm and excitement!

As everyone knows first graders are very curious and I enjoy nurturing their curiosity by exposing them to many new experiences.

My class is a special class called a T-1 classroom. This is a transition class for students that struggled with early literacy reading skills in Kindergarten. This class gives them another chance to learn basic reading skills. Students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. I have students who are learning English as a second language and who all need extra support. We are a charter school that is 13 years young!

My Project

Our school is in need of new flooring but until our thin 13 year carpet can be replaced, a nice soft classroom rug would make my little students very happy. The rug I chose would also be educational and create conversations while sitting on the rug. This rug has pictures with English and Spanish words. In the middle of the rug, they can learn to count in Spanish. A soft cozy rug will offer my studnets a break from their desks and allow them some space to spread out for small group learning, story time, and play time. Please help make my classroom a more comfortable space for children.
