Hooray! This project is fully funded

I have the wonderful opportunity to teach preschoolers (3 to 6 year olds) with disabilities at Gregory-Lincoln Education Center (hereafter, "GLEC")in Houston, Texas! GLEC is situated on the edge of downtown Houston and serves a very low income population. Many of our students live in local shelters, public assisted housing or multi-generational homes. We find that part of our job here at GLEC is meeting the basic needs of our students. I also believe that training parents to help their children is very important! In fact, it benefits the students as well as the parents. The Spanish Take-Home Learning Packs from Lakeshore would enable me to put FUN, CREATIVE, EDUCATIONAL materials into the hands of my Spanish speaking students and their families. As the backpacks travel home and back they will help to extend learning at school to the kitchen table so that everyone can participate! I have found that the best way to learn something....is to teach it to someone else! These backpacks would allow my students that opportunity! This would also increase their verbal skills as they share their school experiences at home and their home experiences here at school! THANK YOU! DMay
