We are a small school within a school district in Pennsylvania.
Many of my students travel a great distance to come to our school, in hopes of gaining a better education than their neighborhood schools, even though many of them suffer with a multitude of issues that plague the city.
I have the privilege of teaching within our middle years academy, which is made up of two 7th grade and two 8th grade homerooms. If given the proper tools and guidance, my students are capable of amazing things. They are creative, intelligent problem solvers. There is no shortage when it comes to expressing themselves, they just need the tools on how to do that in a constructive way. My students are inquisitive risk-takers who, when given a challenge, will not back away. As a teacher, I want to give them that challenge and give them to the world.
I love to come up with a theme to my classroom. I feel this makes it more welcoming, creative, and fun for my students. This year I decided to do a complete change from my blue color theme that I have done the past few years to a Mickey Mouse/Disney theme. I love Disney and all my students know this. They will give me small gifts or items related to Disney. Another thought process was that Disney is the happiest place on Earth and I want my classroom to be the happiest place on Earth.
Each item either has Mickey Ears or fits in to the color scheme of Mickey Mouse.
The items I am asking for (rug, placemat, curtains, and pillow cases) will help to make my room more homey and welcoming for my students. I have extremely excited about the vision of this classroom in my head. With the decorations on this list I will also putting up different quotes from Disney movies, banners and labels will be made with Mickey Ears, and a wreath of Mickey Ears hanging on my door.
