Bright and Shiny Classroom

My students need a nice space to gather together yet respect personal space and a colorful carpet is the best way to do that!

My Students

I teach at a low income, high mobility school that is 100% funded by Title 1. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. My diverse class of students are hard working and little sponges ready to learn. They love to tell stories and eager to learn about new and exciting things.

My students enjoy a welcoming and bright classroom environment where they feel safe and ready to learn.

They enjoy movement and hands on activities. Everyday they strive to do their best and learn all they can.

My Project

My student work hard daily and in doing so much of our classroom resources get depleted. These items will help my students conduct their day to day activities with success and enthusiasm. Having enough items for each student is so important to ensure equity in my classroom.

Having a pair of scissors, a sharpened pencil or a paintbrush of their own gives students motivation to work and also take pride in their work.

My students enjoy creating projects and activities to make at the classroom a place of their own and they take ownership of their space when they have the materials they need to be successful. Having this project funded will help give my students the tools they need to succeed.
