My Students

My students will enter kindergarten this year and many did not go to pre-school or have any type of educational experience.

Over ninety-seven percent of students at my school are categorized as socioeconomically disadvantaged.

This means most students experience significant challenges outside of school.

Despite the challenges they face, my students have the desire and capability to learn. I look forward to continuing to create meaningful teaching experiences that will be the basis for which they learn for the rest of their lives.

My Project

Thank you for considering my project!

I am requesting materials to provide my students with book bins and storage and a rug for a cozier reading area.

The Furrino storage shelving unit will be used to hold the book bins for the class. The book bins will allow students to keep their books more organized and not lose them - which is what currently happens to the book bags they keep in their chair pockets. The carpet will be a comfortable place for students to choose to read their books.
