My Students

My students are group of bilingual kindergarten that come from very diverse backgrounds. In spite of this, they are creative, thoughtful and full of energy. They come to school each day ready to learn to become innovators of this challenging world. My students will be extremely excited if they are able to be funded by this project. I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of their life and hope that they always remember the teachers that have made a difference in it!

My Project

Students will be able to carry their library books in their bags where they are kept save. Puzzles at an early age help them develop their thinking skills where they will be able to apply it later in their education. Students learn through routines having a management chart will allow them to know where they will be during workstations. Dry erase boards and erasers can be used during phonics and math time. My students will be able to use everything and be able be more successful building a better tomorrow with the help of very generous donors. Thank you in advance from our class.
