My Students

Imagination! It's is what we run on in our classroom in Shreveport! My students are always full of energy and full of imagination! We love to put creativity into everything we do! We operate on the "E's" of learning!

Our early learning center is the perfect environment for students to Engage, Experiment, and Explore!

Every student who enters my classroom is ready for tons of hands-on learning fun! Nothing beats the look of an "A-HA" moment on the face of a young learner!

My Project

Nothing helps a young learner engage and learn like hands-on materials. The supplies I am requesting will help my students become better thinkers and problem-solvers. Every year Magna-Tiles are one of the biggest hits in my learning centers. Unfortunately, we only have a set of less than 30 tiles! The lack of materials limits my students' creativity and the option to collaborate with friends.

This large set of Magna-Tiles will give my students unlimited opportunities to use math, science, and creativity everyday!

Watching students plan, design, and construct creative structures is unbelievably amazing! If you choose to donate to our project, thank you so much for helping achieve our goal!
