My Students

Ninety-five percent of my students are from low economic backgrounds and receive free or reduced lunch. They have little exposure to areas outside their homes and neighborhoods and one hundred percent of them come from single family households. Eighty percent of my children have no prior school experience and receive little to no academic exposure in their homes.

While they are struggling to beat the odds, they come to school looking forward to the day learning experience.

The is joy express when they are exposed and learn something new. There is more enthusiasm when they are able to apply this exposure to writing, drawing, or small group discussion.

My Project

Research shows that background noise from inside and outside the classroom negatively affects learning, especially for young children who require optimal conditions for hearing and comprehension. Carpet produces a comfortable place for teachers and young students to expand their learning space onto the floor.

In order to help my students engage with their teaching as effectively as possible, it’s important to minimize any disruptions and distractions that could hinder academic performance.

The relationship between noise levels and academic performance is well documented and even recognized by LEED building certifications.

Our school districts adopted classroom acoustics standards. Carpet helps meet these standards because it is 10 times more efficient in reducing noise compared to other flooring options.
