My Students

Do you remember sitting on a nice, warm rug when you were in school, listening to a story? Think of how good it felt to be sitting with your friends, listening to the story.

My students in the Bronx are coming to school for the first time with inquisitive minds.

Many of them have never experienced a true learning environment that they are about to embark on. Each one of them has different learning styles. Many of the students in our school do not always have the luxury of being read to or the warmth of a rug at home.

Each and every day the students will have the opportunity to utilize their new rug throughout the day giving them a sense of warmth while learning.

My Project

During learning students should be comfortable and warm giving them a chance to focus on a lesson or just a laid back read aloud. When entering the room the rug is always the focus area and with bright colors, the students will enjoy gathering to listen and share their thoughts daily. The floor is too cold for anyone and with a nice new rug they will be relaxed for their day ahead. Many of these students don't have that comfort in their daily lives. They at the very least should receive it at school, where they will always know they are safe and warm. This will help them understand the importance of their educational career.
