My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher in a high-poverty school district. My students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the obstacles that my students face, I want to provide my students all of the materials needed to succeed.

I have twenty-three excited and eager students.

The students in kindergarten love to learn and look forward to coming to school each day. For many of these students, this is the only stable and safe place that they have.

My Project

Students thrive in a well-organized environment. We need several more storage cabinets to organize and store all of our hands-on learning materials. These cabinets will allow us to organize and store these activities to keep an inviting, uncluttered learning environment. The cabinets will also allow for easy access to the materials needed for hands-on learning centers.

The new teacher cart will allow me to remove my bulky teacher desk and allow my students more room for independent learning centers and more space for flexible seating options.

Kindergarten students need space to spread out and move around the room while learning.
