As a teacher in a Title 1 school, my students are faced challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite these challenges, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences in a caring environment.
My students are kind, loving and eager learners.
They thrive with love and positive attention. Many of them receive a free breakfast & lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
I'm looking for donations in order to provide a comfortable corner in our classroom for students to take a break. The bean bags, weighted stuffed animal and fidgets I'm requesting will help create a comfy, calming spot for those of my students that may need to take a break. The last few years have been full of uncertainties during the pandemic. My students need help and support from me to help them cope with their emotions and learn emotional regulation. With the tools I've requested, my students will be able to take a break, reset, and be ready to learn. Thanks for your consideration.
