My Students

I teach an amazing group of 7-8 year old students in an elementary school with a high poverty rate. Many of the students and their families are experiencing anxiety about returning to the classroom. Although this school year does bring new challenges and fears, I believe that I can provide a learning environment where my students feel safe and successful.

My students deserve a positive, soothing environment that allows them to be focused, comfortable, and successful.

I am excited that I have the opportunity to give my kids this kind of environment where they know they are safe, valued, and that they have an opportunity to grow and learn.

My Project

I will create a classroom environment that is positive, nurturing and safe. Your donation will allow me to do exactly that! The students will be more comfortable having the padded cushions and the motion-seating will allow movement, decrease anxiety and improve the students' ability to focus.

I will encourage the love of learning at school and at home.

The take home pouches will allow students to organize their individual books in a safe place at school and may be taken home to read to their family. By having the gift card to Teachers Pay Teachers, I can continue to enhance my kids love of learning by having access to a variety of engaging activities and lessons that I can use in the classroom and in a virtual environment.

I appreciate your support in helping me provide students with a classroom that meets their needs and provides them the opportunity to learn and grow!
