My Students

Every day is new and different in so many ways in my classroom. I want to take my students as far as they are able to go academically by the end of second grade. I want them to be ready to enter third grade with confidence.

"No significant learning can occur without a significant connection." - Comer

Our second grade classroom consists of 23 eager-to-learn students and one enthusiastic teacher waiting to meet the needs of each of my students. My 23 students represent a diverse population with varying learning levels. Some of my students need daily intervention while others need daily enrichment. I have high expectations for each student, meeting them where they are in their life journeys and at their educational levels.

My school consists of about 1,200 students of diverse backgrounds and diverse learning abilities. We have a growing population of ELL students, students we implement interventions for in reading and math, as well as students needing enrichment to acquire success for their educational needs. Our school has an amazing administration and staff who are dedicated to meeting each of these diverse needs and providing a warm, nurturing, and respectful environment.

My Project

Our class would like a large classroom rug to have for whole group learning and for partner and group collaboration. I would like a rug that provides a comfortable place for my students so they are able to concentrate on learning.

This rug will provide the perfect space for my students to have sit spots during whole group math and reading.

We will use the rug during whole group math instruction as well as whole group reading instruction. During these times, the students collaborate with each other about math strategies and asking/ answering questions about reading comprehension. We will also sit on the rug during our daily meetings when we problem solve together.
