My Students

The students in my classroom have qualified for our state-funded preschool due to a variety of risk factors. Some are eligible because of absent parents, illness in the home, documented behavioral disorders, or learning difficulties. Some are English language learners. Most qualify due to low income. Our program is completely free to them and provides 2 meals and one snack per day. The program goal is to take preschool students who are at risk of educational failure and provide them with a high-quality preschool experience that gives them a much needed boost before they head to kindergarten.

My four-year-olds are excited to learn and love coming to school!

My associate teacher and I focus on learning each child’s needs and addressing them in a loving, fun, supportive environment. We want them to learn the skills they need, but we also want them to have a very positive first experience with school! The room that we are in this year was not a classroom until two years ago, so we are working to build up the resources and materials to help our students have a successful, active learning experience. Thank you!

My Project

We have been building up our little classroom library and audiobook choices, but our book area lacks seating. This couch and chair will invite students to our book area and encourage them to stay and read! Many of our at-risk students do not have the kind of cozy reading experiences that all young children can benefit from. We strive to provide as many positive literature experiences as we possibly can. More experiences with books will help our students to progress as early readers. We appreciate your contributions and thank you for joining us in supporting our students on the beginning of their educational journey!
