My Students

My classroom is my home away from home. For many of my students, my classroom is more of a home than where they go to sleep after school.

I want to ensure that the classroom is warm and inviting and that it provides students a comfortable safe zone where they can let go and be themselves.

I am one of the inclusion teachers for my grade level. Providing a safe-haven that is cool and inspiring guides many of these students to value their workspace and ensure a successful day.

My students deserve a nicely decorated and organized classroom that provides them with motivation, inspiration, and determination to do their very best each and every day.

My Project

My students spend a lot of time in my classroom. Sometimes it feels more like "home" than their actual house. I would like to provide an inviting and warm classroom.

The classroom should feel inviting and be a place that provides inspiration to all who enter.

At the end of each year, I have to take all my decor down and then rebuy some items and repost everything back up in August when we return for the school year.

I am thankful for the platform to assist with some of the financial deficit. I want to make sure to start the school year with our best foot forward, and it all starts with the atmosphere.
