My Students

My students all come from low-income households and our school is their place to interact with others their age. It is also where they get to engage with other adults since most have families where their parents are either working almost all day or busy caring for the others in their household. Our school is small and resources for our students are not easily accessible or attainable. Despite that, our preschoolers are always eager to learn and come to school with a smile on their sweet faces. They love coming into our classroom and being who they want to be, without any judgement. They're encouraged to use their imaginations and be as creative as they want to be. We allow them to become who they want to become as they begin their journey to kindergarten and towards their future.

Although funds at our school are not usually available or are very scarce, we do the best that we can with what we have and our children are always eager and excited to be at school.

We are like their second family and there is nothing better than seeing my children's smiling faces when we begin our day!

My Project

My children are very curious and are always asking questions about new people they meet and those around them in our classroom. The Multi-Ethnic dolls I am requesting will help my children in learning about the differences between the different cultures that exist in our world along with teaching them that despite our differences, we are all the same. The clothes will be used to help dress the dolls. The glasses and hearing aids will aide my children in learning about diversity in our school and in our world. There are children in our school that currently need glasses and my children's curiosity lead them to ask questions about those children and why they are wearing glasses.

Providing them with the tools, in this case dolls, will allow our children to become more diverse and more understanding with those around us.

Preschoolers want to know everything and they ask about everything around them! Receiving these items will help us in teaching them to better understand our world.
