My Students

I'm being re-assigned and will be teaching Kindergarten in the Fall. I'm excited to work with students just entering elementary school and are eager to learn. My students are mostly from single-family homes who are struggling financially. Supplies are limited in my school district and I end up spending a lot of money on classroom supplies to help my students reach their potential.

Kindergarten students in need of supplies to learn!

This is a brand new classroom that I would love to fill with endless learning materials and opportunities for my students.

My Project

In my school district, supplies are limited and basic materials are needed. Teachers run out of writing paper very quickly which students need to show work. My students need a pocket chart stand and portable easel because there are no bulletin boards in the classroom.

Kindergarten students in need of markers, glue, and paper to learn.

Student's need materials to learn, having those portable materials will allow me to bring the lesson anywhere in the room. I can also change the pocket charts to enhance each lesson. This is a brand new classroom that I would love to fill with endless learning materials and opportunities for my students.
