My Students

Our elementary school is arts-infused, and we believe arts integration can have a profoundly positive effect on student learning and engagement. The students in my classroom come from diverse backgrounds and love to collaborate, explore new ideas and create solutions to challenges. Some of my students have the availability of the latest technology at home, while others only have access to technology in the classroom.

Purposeful play provides opportunities for inquiry-based learning where children explore answers to their questions through hands-on interaction with materials, build their questioning skills, and enhance their understanding of key academic concepts.

My students are energetic, creative, and critical thinkers who love to learn. They greet each morning with a smile and an energy and an eagerness for what is in store for the day. They are why I chose to become an early childhood educator.

My Project

Classroom easels are an essential teaching tool in early childhood classrooms! Over the summer, I had the pleasure to volunteer at a summer reading program in a different school from my home school. I had an opportunity to use a new teaching easel. I was amazed to find that something as simple as the right easel could increase student engagement and involvement during reading and writing instruction.

Your generous donation will help transform my classroom by providing a powerful visual aid tool that will enhance student engagement and allow successful reading, phonics, writing, and math instruction throughout the day.

Interaction is crucial to student learning and success! This easel will provide my students with many opportunities to be directly involved in the learning process.
