My Students

The students in my Kindergarten class are so eager to start their school year! They are sweet, joyful, and energetic. Majority of my students come from poverty and about half of them have had zero experience in any form of a school setting. All of my students are capable of growing and learning inside the classroom.

My students have so much to learn!

They all have the potential to do amazing things! I love being able to help them grow and reach their full potential! My students bring so much joy to my life. I'm proud to be their teacher!

My Project

Tile floors can get very cold and aren't very comfy. The students in my classroom spend a majority of their time on the floor. They would love to have a nice, warm, comfortable place to sit in the classroom.

A warm, quality carpet will be welcoming and promote learning in the classroom for my students.

I chose this carpet for my students because it will help with seating and will promote learning colors, letters, and sounds. My students will love the colorful squares! It will give each of them their own personal space to sit in. My students spend a lot of time in the floor and they would greatly appreciate a warm and welcoming place to sit!
