My Students

I am the lucky teacher of 22 curious second graders. Our class consists of 12 English Language Learners one of whom is new to the country. Our school is a Title I school and 94% of our students qualify for free or reduced price lunch due to low economic status.

My students have experienced a lot of hardships in their short lives thus far and I strive to make the classroom a safe place where they can thrive.

Part of an engaging classroom is one that is inviting and where everyone has space.

Many of my students live in multi-family houses out of financial necessity sharing a single room with their entire family and sometimes even a single bed.

Currently, I have a small area rug in the classroom for our meeting spot that does not fit all students comfortably. They are crammed together, in a similar way that they are at home, which can cause a lot of distraction during carpet time. Please help me change this!

My Project

Many of my students live in multi-family households and do not have their own personal space. I strive to create a classroom environment that is safe and inviting so students are excited to come to school. One way I do this is by making the classroom colorful and incredibly functional.

Our meeting spot is NOT functional because the carpet doesn't have space for everyone.

I hope to move the meeting carpet to the library area so that students can spread out comfortably to enjoy a good book while I work in small groups on our new carpet in the meeting area. A larger carpet with defined seating will give my students a sense of security and stability that many do not get from their home lives.
