My Students

First graders come to school brimming with enthusiasm and excitement for learning, life, and friends. Their's is an age commonly marked by tremendous growth, lost teeth, great emotional highs, and, less frequently, some pretty low lows. First graders make big plans, jump into projects with both feet, work at a breakneck pace, and don't want to miss a thing.

My classroom is made up of 20 energetic and curious students in an urban, public school.

They will spend their year getting to know themselves as learners and understanding what they need to do their best learning each day.

Our journey throughout the year is to understand and support each other in the belief that everyone is different, and that there is power in understanding personalized learning needs. I want them to feel safe to take risks, make mistakes and beautiful oopses, and push oneself to grow each day.

My Project

The vision for my classroom is to turn it into the classroom environment that students need. I am slowly transforming my classroom into a room with flexible seating. If this project is funded it would provide my classroom with 3 new carpets that the students can use during their learning time. It will take learning from sitting at their desk to opening up 3 new spaces from them to work.

Giving the children the option of different learning spots will increase their motivation and learning stamina.

Please consider supporting this project and providing a safe and comfortable environment for my 1st graders.
