My Students

I have 20 amazing kindergartners this year who are full of energy. They are a diverse group of students who are all so excited to come to school every day and learn. I am so lucky to spend my day with them and learn alongside them.

My kindergartners always keep me on my toes and keep me laughing.

I have children who come from varying economic statuses and a wide variety of experiences. I want to provide all of my students with equal access to learning and prepare them all for their bright future!

My Project

My students have worked so hard on early literacy skills this year and are now reading! They are in need of more advanced reading level books to continue to challenge themselves.

My students love to read and need more guided reading books at their levels.

They enjoy fiction and nonfiction books to practice during our silent reading time and our Daily 5 reading time. They will continue to improve and become better readers with more books and a place to store those amazing books. Your donation will allow my students to progress at their own pace and give them interesting books to do that.
