My Students

Our school is a teeny tiny hidden gem of a public school. This is a sweet school for many reasons, including a diverse school population, a school-wide focus on social justice, and a commitment to children's social-emotional intelligence.

A colleague was recently asked, "Why are you always smiling?" Happy kids make for happy teachers!

Help us be happier kids and teachers--along with a small school comes a small budget. Sometimes our school runs out of supplies and falls short on programming and field trip opportunities. Our furniture is falling apart, too. We don't want to let these kids down.

My Project

Last school year Donors Choose donors graciously funded a state-of-the-art classroom with flexible seating for my students. To round out our classroom, I would like a circle rug with cushions so students can have a choice in seating during all parts of the school day.

During whole group read aloud sessions and lessons, as well as during independent reading times, students can select the type of seat and location on the rug that best meets their needs.

Our wobble chairs, scoop chairs, and crates with cushions will be circled around the rug. This will allow all students to feel included while giving them the space they need to focus and comfortably sit.
