My Students

When most people go to work they are greeted by a computer, a register, or a telephone. I get greeted by tiny, smiling faces that are eager to learn. These students are the reason I gladly stay till 5 at night, come in on the weekends, and toss and turn at night thinking about their successes and areas of improvement.

Although many of my students come from socioeconomic disadvantaged families they are still the brightest, most giving, loving children you could ever meet.

Knowing that cheeseburgers are my favorite food I often hear "Miss G., meet me in the cafeteria; cheeseburgers are on the menu today. You can share mine with me!" They have pride in who they are, how hard they work at school, and the bond we have made. Donating to my classroom would affect the education of 28 hardworking students.

My Project

A classroom rug is often an overlooked important space in classes. This is where my students gather for their morning meeting, review the days main focus, and where they get to do independent work. A bright colorful rug is often the first thing students notice when they enter a room. A majority of my students have never gone to preschool, so they take great pride in their first class. An educational rug not only helps students learn important standards, but it also gives them pride in their class.

A rug is a safe space where students are able to sing, grow emotionally and as friends, learn important personal space rules and gain foundational knowledge that will last a lifetime.

Students in my class spend at least half of their day at the rug. When students get a free choice in where to sit the majority of them always choose to work on the carpet. This rug will be used and taken care of for many classes to come, affecting 100's.
