My Students

I work with some amazing kiddos. This is my fourth year working with boys and girls in First Grade at a Title 1 school and it is safe to say I love this age. My students come from various backgrounds; each unique in their own ways which makes my job all the better. In my classroom, creating a community is the first priority. We are all part of the same CREW and we learn and grow together.

My desire is that the students come into their classroom each day excited about the possibilities in store.

I also want them to feel safe and comfortable from the moment they walk in so they are ready to get messy, be challenged, explore, and learn.

Next year, my school is rolling out the Expeditionary Learning (EL) curriculum in K-2. This is an exciting time! This curriculum is challenging and adventurous and will allow my students to achieve more than they think possible.

My Project

This new EL curriculum is fun, interactive, adventurous, and challenging. It gives teachers a chance to bring more fun into the classroom as students learn through hands on methods and various expeditions throughout the year. With the new curriculum, the students are finally going to be able to spend more time out of their desks and on the floor!

It may sound strange to adults, but my kiddos love to sit on the floor and learn together.

We need a rug to use when we "circle up", have story time, or are quietly reading. As of right now, we have a hard, cold tile floor which is not very comfortable. This rug is especially exciting because it features our galaxy and will bring our Sun, Moon and Stars module to life!

Having a rug will not only make our classroom more comfortable, but it will provide a chance for students to focus on our lessons and be more engaged in the learning process. I am hopeful that this carpet will also allow us to spend more time on learning and less time on correcting distracting behaviors. Comfort, fun and self control all in one rug!
