My Students

My students live in a rural blue collar area. They are incredibly resilient and I am constantly in awe of all they overcome every day. They deal with a lot of hardship such as not having electricity or running water or clothes that fit. I have bought food, school supplies and clothing for them. Sometimes their needs are deeper than my pockets and I need some support with this bigger ticket item. It is something I have been hoping for all year!

My Project

This carpet will make such a difference! I used carpet time last school year and it was great! The only problem was mine was too small for everyone to sit on and did not have individual ‘seats’ for each student. This will help them have their own space and allow me to assign seats for more effective classroom management. My students will be able to be close to the SmartBoard and each other for engaging classroom discussions. It will also help me call them to the carpet in an organized way ex: “Red row, come have a seat on the carpet.”
