My Students

I teach Academic Intervention Services to students in our rural elementary school in upstate New York. Our school has a student population of 350 students in grades K-5 and many qualify for reading intervention services daily. These students are at risk of not meeting grade-level expectations are recommended to receive Academic Intervention Services.

My students come from diverse backgrounds, with a large percentage of economically disadvantaged students.

Many of the students at our school qualify for free and reduced lunch, health and mental health services through community partnerships, and our school's weekly backpack program which includes food for students and their family. A percentage of our students and families also struggle to maintain housing and are considered homeless within our district.

My students are eager, young, innovative, and compassionate learners who work hard on a daily basis. Our students are both sympathetic and empathetic to classmates creating a safe and loving learning environment.

My Project

A comfy, cozy, classroom rug will provide my students with a comfortable, warm, clean, and safe space to spread out during whole group lessons, independent reading and work time. This basic classroom necessity is something that my students love to use on a daily basis. During the colder months, we even project a fireplace on our Smart Board to work and read in front of. This definitely sets the stage to engage my readers! They absolutely love it and having a new rug to sit on would provide students in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade a new cozy corner for learning.
