Our school is an International Baccalaureate application school. It serves students from Pre-K to 5th grade and is focused on providing a global education to urban students from a variety of different backgrounds. The community is diverse, with low-income families, immigrants, and a large transient population. Students from our school will have the opportunity to attend an International Baccalaureate middle and high school, both in our area. Our school district's goal is to become the first high performing urban school district in the United States.
It will be our school's third year operating and our district's second year offering Young Fives.
Our students face a number of challenges and life experiences that make their time spent in the classroom especially significant. My goal is to offer meaningful experiences and opportunities that every child should have, regardless of their socioeconomic status, family structure, or where they live.
In my classroom, we are using an old rug and some carpet from my house we ripped up. Our new rug will be the focus of our classroom, a staple of our daily activities. My goal is to create a spot for our group time, somewhere where we will always meet safely and comfortably for all subject areas, with more than enough room to include everyone.
Having this rug will make it a great meeting spot for our greeting time, work time, and playing.
It will improve the aesthetic quality of our learning environment and offer spaces that will reduce seating-related conflict.
