My Students

Our students are each special. We are lucky enough to have a diverse group of students to teach. They come from all over the world. We want to start off the school year with a comfortable classroom.

A large portion of our students come from a low-income home.

School is their safe place. These students are in the classroom for at least 6-7 hours a day and the teachers want to make their classroom comfortable and inviting to each student.

My Project

I am in the process of designing a reading center that my students will not want to leave. I want my students to be able to have a comfortable area to go to and escape. The canopy will provide a closed in area for the reading area. It will go nicely with the camping theme I have in my room.

The inflatable chair will be used to provide seating in the library area.

It will go nicely with the chairs that I already have in the library. Hopefully it will help provide the reading getaway I am looking for in my classroom.
