My Students

Our school is one campus with grades Pre-K through seniors, all on one campus. Most grades have fewer than 30 students. We live in a very rural area.

My classes consist of seventh through twelfth grades in English, debate, business, and technology classes, and my students who are primarily from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

These students are often in eight classes a day while still active in extracurricular activities and while also helping their families through second jobs, chores, or babysitting younger siblings while the parents work multiple jobs.

My Project

Between mandatory virtual learning and student chosen virtual learning, back to school was a hectic time and my classroom did not get the normal summer refurbishment. Each year my students look forward to coming back and seeing how the room has changed. This year there were few changes.

As all students have now returned to class, I'd like to surprise them with a weekend makeover to make the classroom feel more like their second home where they feel comfortable being themselves and learning.

This project is for bulletin board paper and border as well as various decorative items to place around the room including a themed package, a welcome mat, storage, push pins, and decorative items. It's amazing what just these few items will do to reinvent my classroom and give the students the excitement to finish the year strong.
