My Students

I have some of the best students in the world! My students come to school every day ready to learn. They are sweet 2nd-grade students eager to get everything that they can from school. Many of them come from homes with limited supplies to help them learn so they appreciate everything that we have in our to help their learning.

The students in my class come to school to work hard everyday to get everything they can out of school.

The students want to learn and I want to provide them with all of the materials and opportunities that they deserve.

My Project

My students need a new classroom carpet to gather on. We need a nice, new carpet that has room for everyone. This carpet has 24 chalk spots ready for students to sit on. Students will have their own space and not ever feel crammed together. This will be our favorite new place to learn together!

So many good things happen as our common gathering place: students enjoy using their imaginations as they are being read to, they discuss mathematical concepts in number talks, and they work together in their workstations.

We need a great place for all of this to happen!
