My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher in a school that has recently transitioned from a 3-5 school to a K-5 school. This transition has allowed us to reach our students at an earlier age and provide consistency with less transitions between schools.

I have a class full of inquisitive, curious, and intelligent kindergarteners!

They have a clear love for learning and enjoy coming to school each day. It is my job to ensure that they not only have fun each day, but that they learn while doing so. Each day is a new and exciting adventure!

My Project

My students will benefit from having a comfortable chair and nice lighting. The lamp will allow me to have soft lighting. The calendar will help me to be organized as well as help students understand how to read a calendar and be organized themselves. These items will create a comfortable place for my students to learn. As someone who works with younger children sitting in desks all day is not a realist option. This chair will give students a place to sit as they are working or a safe place for them to go when they need to calm down.

Students learn best when they feel safe.

The items that I am asking for will enable them to feel safe and comfortable throughout their day at school. Who wouldn't feel want the option of sitting in a nice, comfy chair as they learn each day at school?
