I teach a second and third grade combination classroom. My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! Even though they may face challenges outside of school, they still work hard everyday. I am lucky to be their teacher, and work alongside them to coach and mentor them to be successful in their academic career.
Our school is located in a high poverty area.
We are close to the homeless shelter and 79% of students utilize free and reduced-price lunches.We have a high need for our students and need your help to make our school a better place.
A gathering carpet allows us to have a place to work as a community. We can hold morning meetings and teach lessons in a place where we can all sit near each other. We start our day and end our day sitting in circle at the carpet to build relationships in the classroom. Students use the carpet area for reading and writing lessons. They also use the carpet spot to complete work during our math block.
Having this carpet will provide more flexible seating options in the classroom, because students can choose to work there during independent learning activities.
Having this choice will help them stay more engaged.
