My Students

My kindergarten class is in an inner city, low income, high poverty district. My students have many needs including medically fragile, special ed, etc.. They are so loving and want to learn. I try with limited resources to nurture their whole selves, not just their brains.

The 25 angels in my classroom are so eager to learn.

They are so attentive and love to try new things.

Luckily, our school has a loving and creative staff. We try to find ways to keep our students motivated and engaged.

My Project

Thank you so much for taking the time to view my project! These endearing kindergarteners are trying so hard to be ready to learn. We have tables instead of desks in our classroom so it is extremely difficult to keep their supplies organized. Oftentimes their materials move into another studentś space, making it difficult for that child to work.

These over the chair seat pockets would help my students tremendously.

Their writing areas would be clutter free. My students would be able to store their crayons, scissors, notebooks, pencils and folders in it. An organized work space is a happy work space!
