Elementary school counselor needs rug for young students
GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The classroom is meant to be a safe and comfortable space for students to learn and grow.
Sampit Elementary guidance counselor Annie Baxley sees kids from pre-K all the way to the 5th grade. She says she was recently able to invite some of her pre-K kids into her counseling classroom for a lesson.
But for that visit, she says she had to rearrange her classroom because she didn’t have enough floor space or a rug large enough for students to sit down in front of her learning board.
“Right then and there I sat down and I did a Donor’s Choose for a rug and I’m so excited about it,” Baxley said.
Baxley says she has tables for her older students, but with her Donors Choose project hopes to get a large 8-foot by 12-foot farm-themed rug for the younger students.
“We do what we do for them, it’s not for us, it’s to make an environment that’s a comfortable environment,” Baxley said. “If you’re not in a comfortable space you’re not able to be focused and learning and I want it to be a safe and comfortable spot.”
Baxley hopes to get this project, titled “Sit, See, and Learn,” funded to give her learners a nice cozy place to sit and learn while being close to the board in her counseling classroom.
