My Students

I work with the youngest learners in an urban preschool setting. My students are a diverse group of young learners ages 3-5. Most come from high poverty homes. Seventy-eight percent of the students at my school qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

I have students with special needs including communication impairments, students with autism, other health impairments, and students with motor concerns.

It is just a magical experience working with these students each day, and watching them grow. These students come to school eager to learn and brighten my day.

My Project

Our classroom needs Jumbo Paint Dabbers and Lakeshore paint to create masterpieces of art. Our classroom loves to paint, and we want to be able to have enough paint for the whole classroom. Painting with children is more than just a couple stokes with the paintbrush. it is way we can show them to properly hold a utensil, and common writing strokes. Our students love to be at the art easel to paint.

Having an abundance of paint; let's the students use as much paint as they want to create art!

I want to be able to have enough resources for our students to create with paint!
