My Students

My students come to school every day full of life and eager to learn. I teach a second-grade inclusion class where there are many different learning styles and individual student needs.

My students are energetic and have a love for learning despite the many hardships they face daily.

They often view school as their escape from the real world and it would be amazing to create a fun and safe learning environment for them that truly meets their needs. They will be so grateful for your donations and support.

My Project

I want to create a space that my students can read in that will help stay engaged in their books. It can be hard to sit at a desk and read. Many of my students like to sit somewhere else but I have limited seating. I want to add these pillows to my classroom library to help students be comfortable as they read. If my students are comfortable they will be able to read for longer amounts of time. This will help prepare them for the state exams as well as help build their reading skills. My students will also be excited to read on the new pillows, which will spark an interest in reading.
