My Students

Our class is comprised of 20 academically and behaviorally diverse, yet amazing students. The students range from life skills to gifted and emotionally unstable students to those who have a heart for the world and help all my struggling students. Our school is located in a small rural town where many of the students are from low-income households. We are considered a Title 1 school with 60% of our the students being economically disadvantaged.

My heart and soul are full when I'm with my students.

I consider each student a part of my own family. They are motivated to be successful in all areas, yet desire boundaries, organization, and clear behavioral expectations to reach their potential. Many of these students come to school for food, warmth, security, and love. It is my desire to provide these necessities for my students and to make their lives a little happier. Allowing them to have a brighter classroom with a structured classroom carpet would give them something to look forward to when coming to school.

My Project

The students in my classroom often struggle with respecting each others personal space while sitting on the carpet. Overly active students interfere in others learning because they are unable to set their own boundaries when moving around. Students are often seen laying on the floor, leaning on other students, sitting far away, and moving around to different areas to sit. All of these are distractions to focused students and could be improved with a classroom carpet grid, which would provide visual boundaries for each student.

With a classroom carpet grid, active students will be able to see their own boundaries and respect others boundaries at the same time!

Students often sit in the front of the classroom, but struggle with staying in their own space. A classroom carpet will allow the students to have their own personal area to learn.

With this classroom addition, all students will learn in a distraction free environment!
