My Students

My students count on me everyday. I teach at a Title I school in Colorado where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. My school is a close knit community with a large population of English language learners from low-income families. They work hard everyday in a whole group, small group and one-on-one with me. They growth they are able to make in reading, writing, and math is outstanding. I am thrilled to be part of our school community and help my students have success in school. Not only are my students working on the general education subjects, but our school also works with the students with mindfulness. I feel so lucky to be part of a school where the social and emotional needs of our students are just as important as the academic needs.

My Project

A classroom rug is a great way to stay organized in our classroom. It also helps create a community of learners and help reinforce a friendly environment because everyone gets a seat. We use our Listening Place for whole group learning and circle up to communicate our feelings and address the needs of our community.

Rugs are more comfortable than the hard floor and enable longer listening and engagement to take place, as well as it makes our room more attractive and inviting.

A rug is also a one time purchase, so I can use it from year to year and get the most out of it.
