My Students

As a teacher in an inner-city public school, I've learned so much from my students' resilience. They inspire me to be the best teacher that I can be every day. I teach in the heart of the Bronx. My school is a Title I school. This means that my students are at risk of failure and live at or near poverty. Although​ they face hardships and cope with a variety of circumstances at home, they walk into my classroom with ​incredible enthusiasm and a desire to learn.

I teach 30 bright and enthusiastic children that deserve to have a fair and equal opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.

My Project

I'd like to create spaces around my classroom where students can cozy up to a book on their own or with a buddy. My students spend most of the day in our classroom. Try as I may to make it the most warm and inviting space that I can, I've been limited to desks and chairs. I would like to provide inviting spaces that foster creativity and collaboration.

We are hoping to make this essential place in our classroom one that students will treasure and enjoy visiting.

At the moment, we don't have any comfortable seating options for our students to enjoy in our classroom library. This cushioned bench and new rug will be a perfect addition to our library and will provide the comfy seating options we need.
