My Students

I teach four-year-old kindergarten in a large urban public school district in Wisconsin. Currently, our entire school district receives free breakfast and lunch. My 25-30 students attend full-day K4. I have several special needs students who receive services and students who come to school speaking little or no English.

My school has wonderful parents who participate in their child's educational experiences and value education as an important part of their child's success in the future.

My classroom is for regular education and special education children. It is a wonderful, inclusive environment for children!

Because my K4 program is "board-funded" and K4 is not required by Wisconsin law, we receive no additional funds for anything. The former governor has cut the education budget in our state by over 1.6 billion dollars since 2011.

My Project

Wisconsin's schools are closed for the remainder of the year. The public libraries are closed and we are all under a "Safer at Home" order by our Governor until it is safe to resume to school.

My students are at home without all of the materials they need to succeed and continue learning.

Not all of my students have the technology at home to read books online. I just had a project fully-funded to provide them with workbooks, writing journals, crayons and pencils. I would love to add books to the COVID Care Packages I will be delivering to their homes in the next couple of weeks.

Children need books in their hands to read with an adult. It is also comforting for a child to cuddle with a family member and read a book together. My students love books!
