My Students

I teach in a preschool room in a low-income school district. My students are faced with challenges inside and outside of the classroom. Despite the many challenges that my students are facing, I strive to provide them with a fun, interactive, safe, and meaningful learning environment. As their teacher, I try to instill the importance of communicating/listening to one another, being a good citizen and leader, and using trauma-informed techniques to aide them in their social-emotional development.

My students have various learning styles, backgrounds and needs.

Due to being located in an inner-city, funding is extremely hard to come by, and in order to provide my students with the best learning experiences I can give them, I typically find ways to procure these items and experiences out of pocket or by any means I can, which is where DonorsChoose comes in.

My Project

This comfy cozy listening center will make a difference in my student's learning because it will create a quiet, cozy space for them to listen to and read books. My students will be able to come to the comfy, padded seating area to enjoy their favorite story with a friend.

By donating to this project, you will not only be providing soft seating for my students, but you will also be giving them a peaceful place to go to when they need a little quiet time.

The soft seating and the super-soft pillows, which are perfect for sensory exploration, will add extra comfort to this area.
