My Students

My students are working hard to change their futures. More than three-quarters of our students come from low income households, and for many, school is their favorite place to be. They are passionate about life and learning, and inquisitive in nature.

My classroom is a dual inclusion and English-language learner classroom, where students from very different backgrounds and abilities come together and work each and every day to make growth and become stronger readers and writers!

They are constantly learning from each others differences and come to school ready to try new things and take chances. I am truly lucky to work with the group of students I have in Woodbridge and enjoy spending each day with them!

My Project

The materials I am requesting already have a "home" - I know exactly where they will go and how students will be able to use them to increase engagement and productivity. We just need your help getting everything in the door!

We are requesting a sofa, rug, shelf, and storage bench for a flexible seating space in our Middle School Language Arts classroom!

A classroom with flexible seating gives students choice, comfort, and an increased sense of community. It also helps to provide an authentic space for collaboration - something extremely important for a Language Arts classroom!

The large carpet will be a gathering space for our class, where we will have the opportunity to discuss books and ideas. The couches and bench will create a much needed "living room" space in our very large classroom, where students can cozy up with their books and disappear into their stories. The shelves will hold our new books, that definitely need an organized home so they can get to the students who want to read them! All together, these materials will provide a comfortable, safe space for students to come together as learners. Thank you for helping our classroom be the best it can be!
