My Students

My students love to learn and are so hardworking. I teach in a diverse district with children from all sorts of backgrounds. Every single one of my students comes to school each day and despite the circumstances is ready to work hard and try their best.

My Project

Over Winter Break a pipe burst in my classroom which flooded the classroom. Our large carpet where my students sit to learn and work in groups was destroyed in the flood. We also lost our four bookshelves due to rotting. Luckily the books were all in plastic bins and were saved. Classroom rugs are very expensive and unfortunately, ours needs to be completely replaced due to the flood. My class would sit on our rug daily during lessons and instruction. They also loved to sit on the rug to work in small groups. We miss our rug! I have always taught my students to take great care of the materials in the classroom so we were very disappointed to find our materials were destroyed in the flood. However, we are staying positive and finding creative ways to work. But, I know my students would love a new rug.

I am looking for help to fund the new classroom rug as well as four books shelves to hold our large classroom library of books.
