My Students

My Pre-Kindergarten students attend a rural school in Tennessee, nestled in the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest and the Smoky Mountains. It is a Title I school, and over 70% of students come from disadvantaged socioeconomic homes and qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. This classroom is the only Preschool serving a population of students with disabilities in Monroe County, TN.

I want my students to enjoy learning, and remember school as a welcoming, positive experience that helped shape their positive outlooks on life!

Many of these students do not receive any environmental enrichment outside of our school doors. My goal is to make learning as creative and engaging as I can in order for these students to be knowledgeable and prepared for the next chapter of their lives.

My Project

My 3 and 4 year olds are susceptible to every sneeze, cough, and virus coming and going. I want to provide a cleaner environment so that they can enjoy school more and sickness less. An air purifier could really cut back on many of the allergens floating around in our class. My students could also benefit from having a steam mop in our room. Many times, a regular mop leaves behind dirt and a film of yuck. A steam mop could help to sterilize the floors better which is especially important in a room with students who are still crawling. Clorox wipes, hand soap, and detergent are all items used on a daily basis to clean all classroom surfaces, wash hands, dishes, and toys, and accidents on student's clothes.

All of these cleaning items could really help eliminate more allergens, germs, and overall bacteria in our classroom.

Not only this, but I would like to take some of the work off of our hardworking janitors by doing most of the work myself. Please consider helping my students and I receive cleaning items in order to help minimize sickness in our classroom!
