My Students

After our school and many of their homes were flooded by Hurricane Harvey our student's worlds were changed in so many ways.

My students are truly a resilient group who deserve the opportunity to learn at their full potential.

They come with a smile and an eagerness to learn each day. These students love to explore new topics by working together and giving it everything they have. Our school was displaced for an entire school year, but we are now back home! I would love to provide my students with the things they need to be successful.

My Project

This classroom rug will be a focal point for learning in our classroom. The bright colors and soft textures will help bring life and a sense of safety into our environment.

This rug will allow my students to feel at home in our classroom.

My students will be able to gather together in a soft place for whole group learning or a place to snuggle up with a good book. Students will be able to explore, investigate, and engage in their work in a comforting space. Please help me continue to provide a safe and comfortable space for my students.
