My Students

I teach at a head start in Ohio. I teach Pre-K to 19 students. I teach both 1st year and 2nd year Pre-K students. The students in my class rage from ages 3-5. Therefore my students are in various learning stages, and I want to be able to support all of them. My spectacular class of 19 children are adventurous, playful, curious, future leaders, imaginative, and ALWAYS ready to learn! My students show me every day why I love being a teacher. This job is so rewarding.

My Project

Being a first year teacher, I have learned the cost of setting up your classroom can be quite pricey. I need your help to finish making my classroom the perfect learning environment for my students, I work at a Head-start in Ohio. I teach Pre-K to 19 future leaders. I teach both 1st year and 2nd year Pre-K students. The students in my class rage from ages 3-5. Therefore, my students are in various learning stages. Flexible seating in my class will make sure all my children have the same opportunity to focus in class. Being able to provide flexible seating to all students helps make sure no child feels singled out. Osmo is a great learning tool we can use when connected to our ipad. It lets our students use technology while learning by doing. Osmo sees and reacts to every real-live move by the reflector. My students also need a visual timer, so they can grasp the concept of time. They will be able to see time shrink. These are just some of the items that I am requesting to support my students' learning in the classroom, and allowing them to be successful. I thank you in advance for your donation!
