I am super excited that I am teaching the full day, four year old, pre-school class this year in a high poverty public school. People sometimes have the perception that we are well-funded because of our location which couldn't be further from the truth! My students are mostly minority and ESL students. They are a very active, affectionate, and funny bunch of kiddos.
My students want to be challenged and are very curious and excited when new items and curriculum are added to the classroom.
I have been teaching for 22 years and I want my students to want to come to school every day. I want materials that will challenge them, as well as provide fun experiences for them on a daily basis. This is my main focus for them as their teacher.
With another school year coming up on us, we are in need of basic supplies for our classroom. Materials such as these are used by students throughout the school year and in various centers such as art, writing, math and cleaning supplies for overall health in the classroom. Although a grant for basic supplies is not as exciting as other cool projects, it is an essential need to help our year run smoothly.
Students that are in Pre-k go through a large amount of hands on supplies every year when they are provided with a stimulating environment.
I am asking for supplies such as Clorox wipes to sanitize(we eat in our classroom 3 times per day), glue sticks, tape, and paper for art, writing paper and markers for literacy, copy paper for sending family letters, and various other materials. I truly appreciate you taking the time to read my proposal and for supporting Early Childhood Education!
