My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher with 29 students. My English Language Learners enjoy school and find our new Smart board absolutely fascinating! They would love a carpet to sit on in front of our board to help keep them actively engaged in our lessons each day!

My students live in a high-need community where many come from at-risk homes.

We have a wonderful caring staff and a supportive administration that helps to make our school a safe and positive place in which to learn. For many of my students, this is their first experience in school. The Smart board we recently received through a grant has enabled my dual language learners to focus more intently on their literacy and math skills and yet have so much fun in the process!

My Project

A carpet to sit on in front of our interactive whiteboard would also help to further engage my students but also offer them a warm and comfortable place in which to sit down and interact with their friends. The carpet is filled with words and pictures both in English and Spanish so it will be used as a teaching tool, as well.

I recently received National Board Certification and work hard each day in trying to make a positive impact on my student's lives and their education.

My student's love learning and a bright, colorful carpet with English and Spanish words/pictures would help to enhance my student's learning even more! This carpet will also be utilized and very much appreciated by many students and classes to come in the future, as well. Thank you for your support.
