My Students

I work for a Title 1 school, around 90% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. 63% of our students are Hispanic. Majority of ours students have experienced poverty and trauma of some sort during their young lives.

My students are inquisitive, bright, academically tenacious, energetic, kind, and full of personality.

Our classroom represents a safe and nurturing space. It's an environment where my students can explore and learn while figuring out how they impact the world around them with their individual gifts!

My Project

Imagine a place of complete peace and calm. It welcomes you but at the same time energizes and focuses your daily work. Now imagine a classroom full of 1st grade students. My students work under harsh bright lights and are full of busy energy.

Please help me in creating an calming environment that encourages productivity, calmness and focus at the appropriate times!

The products that I have chosen will help visually and physically calm or energize students through their senses while focusing their attention on learning. The light filters will calm harsh lighting while the diffuser will help energize senses.
