My Students

2020-2021 will be a trying year for all teachers. I am a first grade teacher in a district that is teaching in person this school year. I absolutely love my job. Being back in the classroom after a long 5 months away felt so special.

I was beyond thrilled to meet my new students on Monday.

They came in lively and loving as ever, and it helped me remember why this job is so important. My students are busy bodies, and are coming off a tough 5 month break of in person school. Despite all of the negativity in the world they made coming back to school a positive experience!

My Project

Everyone knows that 2020-2021 is starting off as the most unique school year in history. On August 24, I was greeted by 20 masked (6 year old) students. Even with masks on, they were happy as ever. It felt so special to be back in the classroom with smiling and loving kiddos. Covid-19 has clearly changed the way our students learn. The many guidelines and restrictions put into place means that our students have to stay in their own space all day long. Most classrooms at our school enjoy flexible seating. Having to sit in a chair all day has been an adjustment for my students.

I want to make sure that my students know that school is a fun and safe place.

I want my students to feel excited about school. The pandemic has changed so much; however, I want to make the best of each day so that my students can find success and happiness each time they enter my classroom.

I am a second year teacher, and hoping to raise the funds to purchase flexible seating options and sensory options for seating. I have included yoga ball chairs, wobble stools, fidget bands and wobble cushions. These items will allow my students to have more variety when sitting in their individual spaces. While listening and learning, they will be able to physically move their bodies, to help them stay engaged. I thank you all for taking the time to read my story and help my cause. My current students and students in years to come will greatly enjoy your generosity.
