My Students

My 1st graders are eager to learn, and love working together to reach their goals. They love with their whole hearts, and are busy building the foundation of their academic, social, and behavioral skills.

They are learning to apply life skills such as respect, responsibility, safety, honesty, perseverance, creativity, and problem solving.

The students are my favorite part of this career, and I give everything I have for them to be successful. I love my students, and look forward to hearing about all their success in life.

My Project

The carpet that is currently in my classroom is tattered and worn to the point that it can't be washed anymore without falling to pieces.

I would like to provide a clean, colorful, and functional option for my students to sit and learn on during Carpet Time.

The carpet I have selected for this project is bright, has ample sitting room, and the pictures/letters will help with learning phonics.

My students work hard and deserve to have a nice place to gather and learn. Please consider donating to our project. The students and I would greatly appreciate any support. Thank you!
