My Students

The class I have this year is truly a special group! They amaze me every day with their true desire to learn more information about so many different topics. They come to school every day ready to learn, and to share what they know with their peers.

Because they are so focused and motivated to learn, the students don't seem bothered by furniture and materials that are old and worn out.

But a fresh new makeover would make our classroom so much more inviting.

My Project

Our classroom is showing it's age. The furniture is outdated and oftentimes dangerous. Students have experienced splinters in their fingers, desks collapsing and bookshelves that are no longer functional. New furniture will make our third grade classroom (all subjects)more inviting, and conducive to great learning. The four flexible seating chairs will give students a choice in where they would like to do their independent reading.

A bright shiny new classroom will motivate my hardworking students to give all they've got, and make them proud to be a part of our learning family.

The environment that surrounds us can make a huge difference.
