My Students

K-2 students come to my self-contained classroom to receive some of their most crucial learning in a smaller, more targeted environment. My students are identified as students who will greatly benefit from extensive access to high quality resources, spaces, and technology.

As members of the learning community, students will strengthen and showcase their ability to become global citizens as readers, thinkers, mathematicians, writers, and more.

Despite the struggles and stigmas assigned to my students, they are deserving of all the tools of success. With your help we can increase access to resources that increase student buy-in and overall learning.

My Project

This project will be used to create a colorful, comfortable classroom conducive to learning for my students. Students will receive culturally representative books, high quality classroom basics, and comfortable seating to create a community of learners and leaders.

Flexible seating, bright colors, and familiar faces will support my students in creating and engaging in our inclusionary learning environment.

Students will select their favorite stools and cushions in the same way adults buy fuel efficient cars or arch-supporting shoes, to ensure they are able to minimize physical impediments to progress. Maps, clocks, and timers are essential in an early learning classroom as they acquaint students with everyday tools of learning. These materials will help my classroom be a place where I love to teach my students who will in turn love to learn.
