My Students

My kindergarten grade classroom is made up of twenty diverse and inspiring learners. My students come from a wide range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

Our school is located in one of the most historically impoverished communities in San Francisco, but my students are resilient and passionate about learning.

They come to school every day excited to see what topics they'll be exploring. Our school is dedicated to providing services and opportunities that serve the whole child, their family, and their community.

My Project

Kindergarteners learn best through hands-on, imaginative play. This project will provide my students with materials to explore early STEM and social-emotional concepts through play. Wooden blocks and magnatiles are used to explore shape and engineer cities, roads, bridges and buildings. Multicultural dolls allow students to act out social situations and explore community. Play-dough provides a tactile material that can be shaped into letters, numbers, shapes, or whatever their imagination decides.

Kindergarteners need materials to support independent play activities that reinforce the social and academic skills we're learning.

With your help, I can ensure that my kindergarteners have high-quality materials to support play and learning.
