My Students

I teach at a school with amazing students and supportive families. Everyone is willing to work together and do their part to ensure academic success.

Students come to school each day ready and excited to learn.

They learn and have fun by exploring, reading, and writing. They are high energy and bring a great deal of excitement to the classroom. We love to stay active and use movement and games to learn. Our school is a great place to grow and learn together.

My Project

My students are active and love to move their bodies while learning. We even have a spot in our curriculum called "Move, Move, Move!" This year, we have really enjoyed yoga brain breaks and we need a comfortable spot to do our moves. These mats will give everyone a defined space. In addition to using these mats for yoga, they will also give my students a comfortable spot to work during independent work time. Sitting at a desk is not always ideal for my students. They will use these yoga mats to stretch out on their stomachs and work on the floor.
