My Students

My school serves students in grades preK-5. I work in a 4th grade classroom that has 27 kids this year -- but next year I will be moving to 5th grade. I work in a school where the majority of students (73%) are receiving free or reduced price lunch.

These are students who truly need the best quality education, and I would love to do everything in my power to give that to them.

Students at my school are extremely spunky, and creative, but with all that creativity comes a whole lot of energy! These kids deserve many fun, lasting life experiences from school. I want them to get out and do hands-on learning that connects to our curriculum.

My Project

I am trying to redecorate my classroom for next year, and would like to get some items to make our class feel more like home! I want this to be a place where all students feel safe and secure -- which then makes them more ready to learn. We are requesting a carpet and new classroom decorations to make the class feel more "homey."

For many of my students, school is where they have the most stability in their lives.

I would like to offer them as much support as possible by creating a classroom that can feel like a home for them. I want a new, comfortable class rug and some posters/signs with motivational messages, as well as "wood" looking paper to cover up some of our not-so-great walls.
