My Students

I have a group of diverse students comprised of various cultural backgrounds, socioeconomic status, and religion. However one commonality that I see to be true in all of my students is their desire to learn and their love of learning. They push me to be the best version of myself and support me even when I feel undeserving.

My Project

My school is at an deficient for resources and as a first year teacher I am struggling to buy all the materials my students need to be successful in the classroom.The rug that was added to my will help my students build community with each other while respecting personal space.It will be easy to reference when I assign students groups based on colors. Calendar Time and dressing for the weather is an integral part of learning in Kindergarten it helps build community in my classroom and helps students develop schema.
