Mrs. Grzesiek from Houston TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Rugs Are Great!

My students need a rug for their classroom that will be easy to keep clean!

My Students

I teach 10 autistic students ranging in age from kindergarten through fourth grade. My students were all impacted by Hurricane Harvey in devastating fashion. Most of their homes flooded or had standing water.

My autism students thrive on routine and structure and Harvey impacted their routines at home.

I'm hoping creating projects here on DonorsChoose.org will help them feel more comfortable in the school setting and help me as their teacher create that comfortable classroom environment to meet their needs.

My Project

My students need an indoor/outdoor rug for their classroom. My students track in a lot of dirt and rain from outside.

Our classroom is a portable building attached to our school so we walk outside a lot to get to the main building!

Having a classroom rug that won't collect all the dirt and rain water from outside will be very beneficial for my autistic students.

My students have very good attendance even with Hurricane Harvey affecting their community. With a classroom rug, my students will feel cozy coming to school and learning in a friendly inviting classroom.

With your generosity this will all be possible!
