My Students

I am a brand new preschool teacher and have 16 incredible student explorers. My students will spend this school year ready to explore through play and guidance.

The children are 4 years old and need hands-on experiences in order to understand their world.

All of my babies come from low-income homes and may have more challenges than most other 4 years olds. No matter what their home lives may be, I vow to provide the best Pre-K experience that I can. I want to strive to make my room safe, engaging, and fun.

My Project

With these incredible books we will be able to celebrate Black History month each day in my Pre-K classroom. The majority of my classroom is African American and would love to be surrounded with books where they can see more people who resemble themselves.

I would love to share stories of wonderful African American pioneers who led the way to a better today with my own amazing leaders of tomorrow.

These books would be displayed and read over and over again throughout the year. These books will be used during read alouds, independent book walks, and examples during important conversations. Thanks for reading.
