My Students

My students come to class with an eagerness to learn! Although some of them face many challenges at home, they try their best to be successful. They show empathy towards others and work together to accomplish tasks.

Many of my children come from broken homes and their families struggle financially.

At home, some of them worry about having their basic needs met. Family members are incarcerated. Moving from house to house is normal for them. I am a first year teacher in an urban school district. I want to provide my students with a classroom environment that not only supports their academic success, but gives them a sense of stability and belonging. I want them to walk into the classroom each day and feel safe and comfortable. I want them to feel like their classroom is inviting and warm.

Although their struggles are great, they persevere. My students are true examples of strength. They are smart and funny and deserve the best!

My Project

Have you ever sat in a hard chair for hours at a time? Do you feel like your best ideas came during those moments? Help me give my students comfortable choices!

By providing various types of seating choices, my students will be able to take control of their own learning.

They will begin to think about their thinking and make choices as to where and how they learn best.

My students will be able to learn from each other when they collaborate and discuss concepts in a setting that promotes community and comfort! Thanks for considering my first grade classroom!
