My Students

All students deserve to learn in an environment that is friendly, safe, and comfortable. My students come from a low-income/high poverty school district, in the Mississippi Delta and are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. My students have eager minds that yearn for knowledge, but unfortunately, have to make do with less than ideal facilities and circumstances.

I am dedicated to providing instruction with creative and meaningful learning experiences that will enable my students to rise above their challenges and let their potential soar.

My Project

Having a comfortable carpet for floor seating will make story time and educational video viewing a more intimate experience that will allow students to be closer to the presenter and not have to worry with the distraction of moving classroom furniture, as well as provide sound dampening for a room full of hard flat surfaces.

During video time or story time, students can leave their tables and gather together, sitting on the colorful carpet, to be a part of the narrative experience.

This will allow students the opportunity to experience stories, videos, and books read aloud in a comfortable audience setting.
