My Students

Working at a title one campus where there are high rates of free breakfast and lunch, most of my students come from low economic standing families. Many of my students are very limited to the world around them and I want them to know the world is much larger then Houston, Texas. I have multiple students that were affected by the hurricane and I am hoping I can lift their spirits with my awesome under the sea themed classroom.

As I go into my 3rd year of teaching I'm that more excited to help my new little kindergarten ocean buddies learn how to read, write, solve math problems, be a good friend, and most importantly become kind hearted children.

<3 My wish for them is to grow up knowing they can chase their dreams and achieve anything they set their minds to! The sky is the limit!

My Project

I would like a new ocean rug for the upcoming school year for my new little fishy friends. The floor in my room is made of tile so this new rug will be providing a warm and welcoming place for read alouds, morning meetings, workstations, dance parties, math lessons, and so much more!

The rug I am asking for will provide my students a comfortable place to sit every single day.

This new rug will be replacing a rug that is almost 10 years old! The rug is a delightful ocean-themed carpet that is perfect for story time, developing letter recognition and more!

The carpet has 26 bubbles featuring the letters of the alphabet—providing inviting seating for little bodies, which offers enough seating for the whole class! This carpet is made of soil-resistant nylon with heavy-duty binding for years of use, which means this will last me for a very long time!

I want my learners to have an inviting, comfortable, and positive classroom atmosphere. A new rug will provide enough space where students can focus on the classroom material without having to touch each other. This will motivate students to work at the rug and enjoy learning. Most importantly this new rug will we a place we can become a family!
