My Students

I teach a class of 22 amazing kindergartners who are eager to learn and deserve endless resources, experiences, and opportunities. They come from different backgrounds, have a wealth of experiences, and have a lot to contribute to our diverse learning community. They are eager for knowledge and engaging opportunities to learn.

Unfortunately, our school has been closed for 6 weeks and will not reopen this year.

The students, parents and I are working hard to make distance learning work for them. I am utilizing interactive and educational websites, video conferencing, live read-alouds, and finding new ways to teach reading, writing, science, social studies, math, art, and so much more! It's a new world of teaching that is teaching us a lot but we miss each other tremendously!

The district has provided families with Chromebooks and Wi-Fi access and daily lunch is also provided. I am looking to reach my kids in more ways so that they can have the resources needed to succeed! I am hoping the DonorsChoose community can help me reach out to my students to fulfill their academic needs during this unexpected and difficult time.

My Project

One of my students' most favorite activities in school was always art projects and many of my students lack the basic supplies at home. My students love coloring and scented Mr. Sketch crayons and markers were always a favorite! I would love to supply them with these bright, bold, fun coloring tools!

My students love to do artwork and their favorite tool is anything that adds color!

I plan to do more art with them via video-conferencing but many are not able to finalize their art with color. To be able to give my amazing, artistic students packs/bags of vibrant, scented markers and crayons would color their world and color them happy!
