My Students

My students are an energetic and hardworking group of children who are motivated to do their best.

I teach an energetic and motivated kindergarten class.

My students are extremely sweet and deserve the best! Although we are an inner city school, I want my students to have access to the same materials, programs, and experiences that students in the suburbs have in their schools. My students come to school each day eager to read and learn! Please help these lovable little learners.

My Project

We need some back to school basics to start the school year. We need pencils for everyday work, clip boards to write while sitting on the floor, and dry erase materials to make learning more engaging and fun. We need stools or flexible seating, and stamps for motivation and encouragement. Of course tissues and hand wipes are a must in kindergarten to keep ourself germ free!

We need these back to school basics to help start the school year on the right foot.

Help make learning easy and fun in our kindergarten class with some basic materials we need for the school year.
