My Students

My students are among the smartest, brightest, loving and most inquisitive students out there! I have the privilege of teaching kindergarten! Each child enters my room with a different story and background, and my job is to bring them in as my own and create a loving and safe environment for them to learn and grow. My classroom is full of 20 enthusiastic, engaged kindergartners. They come to school eager to learn new things every day. We are constantly pushing forward to meet curriculum guidelines and benchmarks.

My Project

My classroom needs a 4-cube storage unit and fabric bins to hold classroom supplies, materials, and activities that can be easily accessible for all my students. The storage unit will help organize our leveled readers and basic classroom supplies.

These sturdy 4-cube storage units will provide a safer learning environment for all of my students by defining and organizing our classroom supplies, resources, and materials.

The computer desk chair will make my students feel at home and comfortable while learning! I like to use flexible seating during small group/independent work. This desk chair will give my students another seating option.
