My Students

My first graders are very loving, energetic and constantly keep me on my toes! Each one of them brings their own "spark" to our classroom.

I am blessed to work in a public school near Nashville, Tennessee, with a diverse group of students!

My students come in every day ready to learn! Because all of my students come from different backgrounds, I strive to make my classroom as fun as possible! I try to provide as much as I can for them in order to make their learning a success!

My Project

The classroom rug is where most of the gathering and learning occurs for all subjects. Right now, we are without a classroom rug. I want to provide my students with a safe and comfortable place to gather and learn!

The students will be using this rug to learn and explore new literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts.

They will be using it during their work stations, as flexible seating options, and as a gathering space to share. The rug will also provide a sense of comfort for my students who are anxious and who need sensory contact with soft materials.
