My Students

Each day, my K3 preschool students come to school eager to learn, explore new things, and participate in exciting activities! My school serves children of all abilities and their families through the Head Start program. It is a part of a large, urban school district. My school is considered high poverty yet it has high expectations for everyone!

My preschool students are curious and inquisitive; they are excited about what they will learn at school!

They learn best when using engaging, hands-on activities where they can work together.

My Project

My classroom project includes a set of eight fluorescent light filters from the Nasco company. These decorative light filters will soften the glare and brightness of the fluorescent lights in the classroom. Soft shades of blue, purple, and green are displayed on the light filters. This will create a warm and inviting space for young children of all abilities to learn and play.

These fluorescent light filters will help to create a calm and pleasant classroom environment.

It will promote my students' learning and concentration. The classroom will have a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere with these cozy light filters. No more eye squinting!
