My Students

I have the privilege of teaching the best group of middle school students. These students have been given second chances and a safe environment to learn and thrive. These students lack support and healthy relationships.

When students are supported and loved they feel important and learn to thrive.

These students are several grade levels behind and need support to catch up academically and socially. My goal is to provide these students with what they need not only academically but also socially and emotionally.

My Project

I would like to create a Chill Zone in my classroom for my students to have a safe comfortable area they can calm down in. By having a comfortable rug with a bean bag and some pillows, the students will have a safe place they can go to when needed.

The Chill Zone will be a safe place for my students and offer comfort to them when they are upset, vulnerable or overwhelmed.

When students feel safe and comfortable they build trust and rapport with their teachers. My goal is to teach these students about healthy relationships and foster learning at the same time.
