My Students

I work at a TItle I school located in the heart of Arvada, Colorado. I'm proud of my school and the 600+ students who attend A K-8. Most of the students I have the privilege to work and learn with experience poverty and challenging situations at home. Regardless, my 5th Grade students have eager minds and open hearts! They are always ready to learn something new and engage in new educational experiences!

I am hoping to add to the educational experience and emotional development of this special group of children.

It's really going to be an exciting school year in 5th grade!

My Project

I am requesting a large carpet area for my students. We meet all throughout our school day at a common area. However, the space on the floor it just not comfortable without a soft spot to sit.

We meet at the carpet for our focus lessons as a large group.

I like having the students close to me for crucial instruction. They pay closer attention to the lesson and are able to interact with their peers.

I also use the large carpet area for our classroom meetings where we problem-solve classroom issues, celebrate our successes, and set goals for ourselves. It's a place where we feel like a family!
