I love my Lyman Hall kids! They are such special young people with such appreciation for the smallest things. They humble me, and make me love coming to school every day. I only hope I do the same for them.
Lyman Hall students are over-comers; despite their setbacks with language and poverty, they are eager and proud to learn.
The students here have faced more in their lives than most of us can even imagine, but still come to school excited and ready to learn every single day. They love being at a place where someone loves them and pours into them daily. Lyman Hall is a sanctuary for them, and I want my classroom to be even more of that. I don't want the fact that it's my first year teaching to be the reason my classroom isn't all that it could be. They deserve nothing but the best. They're full of drive and potential, and I want to be able to give them the need the resources at school that can push them beyond their "limits."
My hard workers and high achievers will really look forward to working at this fun new high top table. They like to work at the kidney table I have now, but it is so large it makes it difficult for those working in partners or groups.
The table we have is very shaky and squeaks as they work, which causes a major distraction for the whole class.
I am hoping this table will be a great place for them to work!
They can come to the high top table to "get away" and do their best work, without distractions. I can't wait to freshen up my classroom with this bistro set that will offer my students the perfect working space.
