My Students

My Kindergarten students are excited to learn! I teach at a Title I school in Michigan. Approximately 85% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch. My students come from diverse backgrounds and academic abilities. My student's home lives vary and they are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. For some, coming to school is the one constant in their life. While I cannot control their home lives, I can control their experiences inside my classroom.

My students are eager to learn, love to try new experiences and move around while doing so.

My students soar when they have positive reinforcement. By being creative in my teaching and classroom atmosphere, I am hopeful that I inspire them to love learning, excel in life, achieve goals together and do what's right!

My Project

We meet on the floor as a class for many activities throughout the day! Every child needs a spot to be part of our meetings.

With a classroom carpet, the students will each have a space to sit.

Students will be able to sit with partners to discuss what they have learned. Students will have a space during our Daily 5 literacy time to listen to stories, write word wall words, read a book or play a literacy game. This carpet will be used all day everyday!

With a classroom carpet, my students will have a cozy, comfortable space to learn!
