My Students

"If we teach today's students, as we did yesterday's, we are robbing them of tomorrow." -John Dewey

My students are moving throughout the room daily.

They are 4- and 5-year-old children. All my children come from low income or high-risk families. Our program is not able to ask for donations for anything, including soap, tissue, paper and the other essentials that I provide with my own money. This is my students' first school experience, and I want to offer them the most positive experience possible.

My Project

My Preschoolers need binders to keep their writing pieces organized. The tape will help us organize the classroom by adding labels throughout the room to help promote literacy. The hanging files will help keep their work organized. The Clorox wipes will help ensure the classroom stays free of germs to help prevent illnesses from spreading. By funding my project you will be helping me provide some of the basic supplies to help start our year off on the right foot. Students love to see their work in book form and the binders are an easy and efficient way to collect their work.
