My Students

At our diverse, low-income, Title I school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Our school also has many different types of learners including many special education classes as well. Despite the many challenges they face, I am always looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences and ways to help them learn at their greatest potential.

Having an environment that is conducive for every student to learn is so important to me.

I've taught so many years, that the one thing I have learned is that not all students learn the same. I love being able to have a safe space to allow their creative mind to build and explore. I love creating a safe learning space for my students to explore their capabilities and dream of their futures.

My Project

Every year, I welcome a new group of enthusiastic, bright eyed learners into my classroom. Every year, I feel bad that the teacher I replaced left a tiny carpet with tiny squares that my big first graders all have to squeeze into. Uncomfortable children can't learn. Carpet space is necessary for children to be comfortable when they work. It's difficult to work with math manipulatives or work on projects in tiny spaces. I look at my squished children and just feel sad for them. I would love a huge carpet that will allow all my children to sit comfortably and work on projects, read, learn, and be students. My future students will greatly benefit from having this rug in their learning environment, because it will be a primary place where they can reinforce concepts, as well as help better our reading skills. Having a rug like this in our room will also help organize the students every time we transition from activity to activity. They will know where they need to sit and they can go back to that spot easily.
