My Students

I teach in a resource-room with 6th grade students. I "pull out" students for language arts and math and we work together in a small group setting to enhance and individualize our learning. There is a strong sense of community in our small class and I do my best to make learning fun and interactive for my students each day!

Motivated, bright, and friendly are how I would describe my students.

They try their best and despite having some learning difficulties, they rise through challenges and never quit!

My Project

Our classroom was lucky enough to be given lots of flexible seating options for my students to choose from! Now, we need a bright and colorful rug to make our space feel even more cozy and spacious.

Students learn best in an environment that feels safe and warm.

A bright and colorful rug will spruce up our space and make our classroom feel like even more of a home. With lots of flexible seating options, a spacious rug will give students even more flexibility when working around the room. It will also add to our spaces' unique and colorful decor.
