My Students

My students are from different parts of the Tampa Bay area. They are a diverse set of students. Most are energetic, very creative, eager-to-learn, smart and so much more. Every day they arrive before most people are even in the car on the way to work. They love working with partners and in groups. I want my classroom to enable them to be ready for the real world.

Students are happy with their school and teachers.

Each day they learn something new and come back the next day ready to learn more.

My Project

My students love sitting on the floor or having their shoes silenced on area rugs to create better focus.

Help bring bright color and comfort to my students with an area rug for learning.

Middle school students such as mine love color in the classroom. I've worked hard to create a color palatte that will increase creativity and also being calm to students in the classroom. This plum colored rug will do nicely to help meet the color palatte of soothing and comfortable colors. Kids love to move around in the room while they work. They even love sitting on the floor. In my classroom their is no carpet just bare floor.
