My Students

Since this year is my first year teaching, I know these students will hold a special place in my heart. I will look back on this year, 20 years from now, and remember every student's name, and the lesson they will inevitably teach me.

Each one of these students brings something unique and different to the classroom every day.

They may bring the largest smile to school, or they will bring the challenges they face at home. Either way, these students are special, and they deserve to have a great year of learning. They deserve to have their voices heard, and participate in learning in the best ways possible! I am excited to go on this journey of learning with them, and I want this year to be the best I can make it.

My Project

I truly believe that a comfortable and safe environment can make all the difference in a child's learning. I want to provide flexible seating for my students, as well as general comfortable decor/organization to make sure the students feel safe and welcomed into my classroom.

The bean bag chairs and pillows, will allow students to have more autonomy in their learning.

Flexible seating allows children to choose where they work, and with whom. It also allows them to stay calm, focused, and productive on whatever task they are working on.

The flexible seating, as well as the classroom decor, will build a community in the classroom, and facilitate collaboration. I will use the throw pillows, and rugs to accomplish this.

The bulletin board borders and paper will help me create different bulletin boards that will help track their progress, as well as provide words of encouragement and safety to the students.
