My Students

My students are a part of a Preschool For All program which gives learners from all different cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds the ability to learn and receive the education they deserve!

My students are energetic and intelligent learners who love to grow and explore through hands-on experiences!

I love seeing my students learn and try new things! I love seeing how proud they are of themselves when they write their name, finish a puzzle, or create something beautiful in the art center!

My Project

During this unprecedented time of quarantine, I want to give all of my students equal opportunities to be able to continuing their learning at home! Our district is a low income school district in which many of these students do not have these resources at home.

These kits of play doh, scissors, books, puzzles, letters, and more will give all of my students equal opportunity to continue learning and growing during this time at home.

These supplies will help my students grow in their literacy, math, and visual arts skills while allowing them to use their imagination and have fun!
