My Students

My kindergarten students are eager to learn and are especially motivated to work independently. My school is a Pre K-5 public school in a diverse community. Half of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

My students love to be challenged with new tasks.

They are so excited to learn, and I provide them with lessons to help each and every child learn to their potential. My students learn best when I give them opportunities for hands-on activities throughout the day.

My Project

My students need basic school supplies! This year our budget for general supplies was reduced by 50%.

My students are becoming readers, authors, illustrators, mathematicians, and scientists!

They need writing folders, paper, crayons, pencils, and erasers to use for writing, drawing, creating and coloring. Kindergartners need a variety of materials to keep them engaged and to help foster their creative minds as they write, draw, color and create!

These necessary supplies would allow me to replenish my students' art boxes, as needed, and they would be able to continue on their way to a great year of learning in kindergarten!
