My Students

My students are very young. They do not understand why they can't come to school because they still love coming to school. I would love to see their passion for learning continue from their homes.

We are currently trying to use phone and internet classrooms, but many do not have these resources.

We are meeting online via youtube and we also have ZOOM meetings. We are doing the best we can.

My Project

As part of our distance learning program, I have been reading books to my students online on youtube and during our ZOOM meetings. It has been great to read and discuss these books to the kids. There is just one problem I am running out of books.

If you choose to help us with this project you would be purchasing fifteen great books like Pout-Pout Fish, Finger Book, Ready for Kindergarten, Press Here, and many more exciting books.

This would give me more books to read to them and more smiling faces for our students.
