My Students

My team and I serve young learners in a Title I public school located in the steadily developing Southwest quadron of the District of Columbia. Our prekindergarten inclusion class is a warm, rich community of enthusiastic, engaged learners from diverse families. They love coming to school, and sharing experiences with their teachers and friends. And I love that this young community of culturally, socially, economically, and academically diverse learners come together to engage and encourage each other.

Many of our young scholars are new to the formal school setting, and as preschoolers require lots of tactile, oral, and visual experiences.

Most of my students are from low income families who have set goals and standards for their children to obtain an high quality early childhood education that would lay the path for future accomplishments.

My Project

This carpet is just perfect for allowing our students space during whole group gatherings!

Our students need to be positioned close enough to engage with one another appropriately, but they also need to have enough distance between them to encourage respect for each other's personal space and to deter them from distracting one another while learning.

This carpet is perfect for defining positions so that groups of children are not too close to each other when they are gathered together, for spacing children in a way that will promote attention focusing, and for allowing the freedom of movement for designed peer interaction experiences.
