My Students

My first graders are AWESOME! They are explorers and they are constantly on the move. My school is a place where teachers work hard to educate children from the inside out, emphasizing holistic learning to enhance student growth. We emphasize being safe, being kind, being respectful and being responsible each day in our little classroom. I work with 20 amazing and hardworking students who are extremely eager to learn, participate, and support each other's learning throughout the day.

Our school is a Title I school that serves many military families that are connected to Fort Bragg and 100% of our students receive free/reduced-price lunch.

We are a low wealth district in Cumberland county.

My class is full of students with a variety of interests, experiences, needs, and strengths. With the resources and structure they need to apply their curiosity, they will continue to develop into strong learners and balanced individuals. I may not be able to control their home lives, but I really try to provide meaningful and memorable experiences for them every day.

My Project

Several of my students that I teach have different types of exceptionalities that cause them to fidget and maybe squirm a lot. Giving them the option to have a seat that allows them to calm those characteristics would be nothing short of a blessing for us!

Teaching is my passion and I always strive to do whatever I can to make my students feel right at home each day they are in my classroom.

I am positive that these stools will make a difference in my classroom.

I want my students to be comfortable when learning, because they will learn the best when they’re comfortable! A better seating choice to help my students focus on reading, writing, and math is all I want for their continued success. Please consider helping me fund this project.
