My Students

My students come from a small neighborhood school that is a combination of special needs students and regular ed. With all of their varied backgrounds and abilities, my students come together to support one another in a classroom full of love and respect for all. Even though our school is in a lower socioeconomic section of town, the community rallies around, and supports our students by attending school functions/sporting events such as our recent Special Olympics Event that many of our students participated in.

My Project

One way for students to come together and grow as a class, is to have a place where they can sit together to converse, to laugh, to share, to grow, and to learn. A classroom carpet would bring that added element to our room to do just that, it will give my students for years to come, a space in the classroom where all can gather to fill their minds with new things to take with them out into a world where imagination and the magic of learning can make their lives a little bit better for that brief period of time when they are at such an impressionable young age.
