My Students

I teach in a public school in Colorado. I have a very diverse population of students where more than half my students come from low-income families. Many of my students struggle with reading. Some have special needs, while others are dealing with trauma. Regardless of their struggles, they ALL have a love for learning and are determined to be successful! ❤️Our classroom community is a place where we all work very hard each day and deserve the BEST learning environment!

My Project

In our classroom, students are given many opportunities to read around the classroom. While reading with others, students need comfortable seating that provides a warm, comfy feel! This new furniture will encourage students to enjoy reading in a “special place” where learning can be “flexible”! 🤗 Since there are students with special needs in our classroom, the furniture will allow them to move more freely around the classroom and comfortably read in different areas around the room! In First Grade, students need opportunities to move around and work in different places! The furniture will help to provide a comfortable place to learn!
