My Students

I teach the best group of kiddos imaginable! I have the privilege of teaching at a Title I school in Louisiana. About 60% of our students receive a free or reduced lunch. Despite our statistics, my students are always eager to learn new things! They are a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day and even with all the things they must overcome on a daily basis they are willing to explore and learn anything! What a privilege it is to inspire these young minds!!!

My Project

In our first grade class, we spend a lot of our time learning during circle time on a carpet or rug. Having a classroom rug would give the students a comfortable place to sit for whole group learning and even for small groups or workstation activities. At this moment, we have a piece of carpet that doesn't have designated areas for the students so it causes a lot of confusion when the students are trying to find his or her "special spot." With this rug, the students will be able to find their spot easily which will help with transitioning between activities. This rug will brighten our room, provide a comfortable place to sit, and help our day run smoothly!
