My Students

I teach second grade in a small community which is a part of a large county called Spartanburg located in South Carolina. I have 21 students and they all come from different cultural and religious backgrounds. A little over 50% of our students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

They are full of personality and potential.

Each child in my class has a contagious energy and excitement towards learning. My friends are respectful and caring. They are good listeners. They love to share and work with partners.

My Project

My students need a nice, new area rug to read on in our reading corner. The cozy reading corner helps students to feel comfortable and also encourages them to read! The rug we currently have is small and old. This new, teal rug is vibrant and inviting.

Students will surely be excited to explore books in our reading corner with this cozy, Cotton Rug Chevron Pattern rug.

It has a lot more space so more friends can enjoy reading together.

The red pens are for students to mark their papers with, the party favors are for our treasure box, and the snap lid container are for cards for our math facts.

Thanks so much for helping my students love to read by providing this rug for our cozy, reading corner. A little donation makes a big difference!
