My Students

I have a wonderful group of creative students who are full of life. Every day they work very hard to reach their goals.

My students come from different backgrounds in a Title I school located in South Central Los Angeles.

More than half of my students are from low-income households. My students are eager to learn and be creative every day. They are sweet, kind, respectful, responsible, happy, and curious students who love to explore the endless possibilities in our classroom. They are amazing kids that deserve the best education. I feel blessed to teach such an amazing group of students.

My Project

During this difficult time, my wish is to make distance learning a little better and fun for my students. My project includes leaning tools that my preschoolers could use during distance learning that will allow them to use their creativity, stay engaged and keep learning.

My students love to learn and create amazing projects everyday.

Please help me to give my students the gift of learning with basic school supplies to create daily learning activities folders.

I am requesting folders, paper, pens and markers.

I would also like to get some digital resources from TPT that would make virtual learning a little easier for my students. I would like to purchase alphabet activities, math, science and writing activities that will allow my students to become successful learners.

Thank you in advance for providing my students with the essential materials to get them prepared for success.

Your kind donations will make a tremendous difference in all of my students' academic lives. Thank you again for spreading kindness in our classroom during these difficult times.
