My Students

My classroom is a diverse community. My students enjoy coming together to learn all sorts of things. I have the opportunity to teach 17, 2nd graders.

They are energetic and ready to learn many new and interesting concepts.

They get excited when ideas and concepts relate to their small world. They also enjoy fiction stories that help them dream big!

I teach in a Title I school which serves low income families. I take each opportunity to provide my students with the best learning experiences possible.

My Project

We would love to have a large rug in our classroom. This would be used for our interactive read aloud time. This is my students' favorite part of the day. We can come together and enjoy a great book, share with each other, and become better readers together. Right now, I have a too small green rug that all my students cannot fit on. I would love to give my students this comfortable space.

Your donation to this project will greatly improve the learning environment of my classroom.

It would not only impact the lives of my current students, but of any students that I will teach in the future. Please consider donating to my project.
