Mrs. R. from Berea KY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sitting on Top of the World!

Help me give my students a clean and comfortable place to sit by providing this beautiful and educational rug. My current classroom rug is very old and stained and does not appear inviting.

My Students

I am thrilled with my kindergarten class this year! We live in a small college community and my students come from a variety of backgrounds.

This is a hard-working group of students.

My students are kind to each other and synergize well. Every student has a classroom job each week and they take their jobs seriously. They all are eager to learn.

I also take my job very seriously. I want students to leave my classroom prepared for what is ahead. I value my time working with them and I take great pride in seeing how they grow in skills as the year goes on.

My Project

Much of my instruction to my kindergarten students is from the carpet area in my kindergarten classroom. We gather there throughout the day to sing and dance and learn many valuable things. My current carpet is old and stained. It has been cleaned many times and is showing it's age!

A new carpet would add excitement and my students would enjoy a new comfy, clean place to sit.

I try to do all that I can to ensure success for my students. As a parent of older children, I realize how important that is! I want the best for them!
