My Students

I have the privilege of teaching 23 amazing 5th graders. My students are filled with energy and are so hungry to learn. They come into my classroom in great anticipation to discover the great things that we will work on! They soak in information and get so excited about knowledge. I teach in a Title I school which contains low income families. Every student in my school receives free breakfast and lunch. I take each opportunity to provide my students with the best experiences possible.

My Project

I would love to give my students 2 nugget couches. Nuggets are the dynamic duo of foam and fabric, with each of the Nugget’s four pieces (two triangle pillows, one seat cushion, and one sturdy base) covered in cozy micro suede that’s easy to zip on and off. The cushion and base have a seam down the middle, allowing them to be folded or flipped out for more comfy creations. These would be great to have for students while they are reading their independent books, learning, or collaborating on a project with their classmates. This would allow us to have more seating opportunities.
