My Students

I work with the youngest learners in an urban preschool setting. My students are a diverse group of young learners ages 3-5. Most come from high poverty homes. Seventy-eight percent of the students at my school qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

I have students with special needs including communication impairments, students with autism, other health impairments, and students with motor concerns.

It is just a magical experience working with these students each day, and watching them grow. These students come to school eager to learn and brighten my day.

My Project

Help donate to our classroom so we can have more creative art projects in the classroom! We are a growing class, and always love to use our easel to watercolor paint. Unfortunately, we do not have enough watercolor trays for all our students to participate in. We are asking for Neliblu Watercolor Paint Sets Bulk Set of 24 with 8 Washable Colors, and Paintbrushes for Kids so each kid can paint at the table together, and not have to take a turn at the easel.

We are also asking for construction paper of colors that our students like to use the most.

My dream for our classroom is to have an abundance of art supplies, so each kid can use their creative minds to make projects!
