My Students

My students are learning today for tomorrow! They come in eager to learn everyday and come from diverse backgrounds. No matter what their situations are at home, my students work hard to be helpful and to also embrace the motto of never giving up. They are always trying their best and even encourage others to do their best work.

My students love to be creative and make things with their own hands.

It is those things that they cherish and are proud of. Those things which make them walk out the door with a big smile on their face.

My Project

The supplies I am asking for will allow my students to continue to participate in the fun Kindergarten experience. In Kindergarten we are learning to read. A visit to the library should be exciting. The book bins and chair will help my library come to life. Other materials I have asked for will allow me to continue to create a positive and motivating learning environment which will allow all student to create learn and grow in.

My students love using anything new especially when it come to things that will motivate them to learn.

Please help in improving my students' Kindergarten experience. Thank You!
