My Students

I teach in a small village community in Southwest Michigan. Our goal as a school is to empower each student to be successful in life. I teach a group of 23 First graders who are going to change the world one day.

They are creative, passionate, caring and EXCITED to learn!

Each student has their own unique personality that makes our classroom community so rich! They are excited to come into school each day and be able to express themselves.

My Project

We are requesting an alphabet seating rug. I currently have a mix of two, plain black rugs with sit spots for my students to gather on for whole group instruction. While the system works fine and looks great - there are many flaws to it. The rugs I currently use are constantly flipping up and tripping my students when they walk across it and the sit spots don't allow them to have enough space to themselves when sitting all together.

This new rug will be safer for my students and provide each of them enough space to sit comfortably.

Help me provide my students with a safer more comfortable learning space!
