My Students

My students are wonderful 5 year olds that come from diverse backgrounds and attend an inner city school in Philadelphia. My students come from bilingual households that value and stress the importance of education . They receive free lunch and breakfast each day.

I am greeted with 30 beautiful smiles every morning.

My students are very energetic and full of questions in Kindergarten. I want to create a comfy, cozy and clean area for my children to read and learn throughout the day.

My Project

Due to devastating budget cuts, teachers don't have the resources necessary to purchase materials for the students. I am requesting these materials because I want my students to have a wonderful Kindergarten experience.

Children love to create things with bright colored paper and paints.

My students love to make art work and decorate the classroom with their beautiful paintings. The students feel a great amount of pride when they show their work to their parents.

My students are eager to express themselves with different brightly colored materials. The colored paper and stamps will enable my students to get creative and produce wonderful works of art with their classmates.
