My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher at a school that prides itself on serving a diverse population of students. This year I am teaching at a new school; my classroom a beautifully blank canvas. I want to create an environment in our classroom that students feel engaged and excited to come learn in.

Working in the inner city is as equally rewarding as it is challenging due to the many learning styles and home lives of our students.

Our students come from several different backgrounds and have different family lives, language barriers, and learning styles.

My Project

These materials will help me create a kind learning environment needed for students to feel comfortable and excited about learning—engaged students meet and exceed their goals! The reading and writing materials will set the tone for a year full of literacy growth, students will do so much reading and writing this year to get ready for the rest of their student careers.

I am asking for materials to create a comfortable and safe learning environment for our students.

Creating a space that is fun, inviting, and colorful will help students to feel at home in our classroom. A welcoming place to learn and grow!
