This August (2019) will be my first year teaching, and I cannot express how thrilled I am to be a part of my school. The future students in my classroom and at my school are from a low income area with the majority of them receiving free lunches. Many of these students are underprivileged and some do not have a strong sense of family at home. These things do not define them. My classroom will always have a foundation of family, kindness, and respect for each other.
“Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them” -Lady Bird Johnson.
Although I have not met my students just yet, I already have so much love for each and every one of them. I have substitute taught previously at this school before receiving my 1st grade position, and I have already met some of the amazing kindergarden students that may be placed in my first grade class. They are eager, intelligent, beautiful, curious, and each one of them is so unique. I cannot wait to meet all of them and see their bright faces walking into my inviting classroom at open house in August!
First graders are still learning personal space, developing good choices, and keeping their wiggles contained! Your donation will help fund a beautiful rug that has large sit-squares for each and every student. These individual spaces will really help my classroom management by providing my students a clear indication of where their space starts and ends during instruction/reading time.
I do the majority of my teaching and reading from the carpet, because I find it more engaging for my students to be able to collaborate with one another as a group.
I know my students will be so excited to have a colorful space to call their own!
Your donation will also go towards sturdy and colorful book boxes for each student to keep their "just right books" organized!
