My Students

As educators, more often than not, we are expected to provide high-quality learning opportunities in our classrooms despite having insufficient materials to do so.

As a new teacher, it is particularly difficult to provide adequate materials for students.

My scholars are brilliant and they deserve high-quality resources and materials that are similar to their higher-income peers. This gap should not determine a difference in their educational experience.

The community of learners in which I teach is vibrant, tight-knit, joyful, and eager to learn each and every day​. My students are dreamers. They dig deep into their learning, demonstrate curiosity through questioning, and display a sense of energy that is contagious. My students deserve nothing less than amazing. They are the future!

My Project

A few years ago, I purchased some yoga mats for my classroom. My students started to express interest in actual yoga instead of simply using them as flexible seating options.

Help me help them by practicing yoga and other mindfulness practices that increase healthy living.

The materials for this project will be helpful in developing my students’ social and emotional well-being.

Items such as the books can be great conversation starters and learning opportunities, the games can give us fun opportunities for practice, and the water bottles will help us engage in healthy habits of conscious hydration and giving our bodies what they need to be happy.
