My Students

I teach an energetic class of 20 Pre K students. These students are the youngest children in a diverse Pre K through fifth grade elementary school. My students' work is play. We spend a significant portion of our day working in free choice areas. In these areas students learn through play with the support of a classroom teacher and an assistant.

Every day is an adventure in our classroom, and my students are eager to engage in the challenges of daily learning.

My Project

I have a room full of budding young artists who need a variety of supplies to use to bring their imaginative creations to life! We need newsprint paper, tempera paint sticks, collage materials, and so much more to spark their creativity.

By donating to this project, you will be giving my students multicultural art supplies, too!

This diverse group of children needs multicultural markers and pencils, so they can accurately depict themselves when they create their 16" people shapes, when they draw their monthly self portraits, and for free art projects during free choice time. Help supply us with the materials these aspiring artists need to succeed!
