My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher at an International Baccalaureate school. As an IB school, we strive to develop not only strong academics but also strong social and communication skills! As teachers, we are here to guide and foster learning through inquiry.

I am a teacher at a truly diverse school.

We are a Title I school. The population of the school consists of seventy-five percent students of color, seventy-one percent of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, and thirty-eight percent English language learners. Many of the students speak English as their second or third language.

My Project

I am requesting seat sacks to organize and house my students' daily materials. Organization is a vital part of any classroom. To maximize instructional time and minimize transitions I want to provide them with seat sacks. These seat sacks would a fantastic tool for giving them a safe place to keep their materials. Rather than losing time during instruction to get up and retrieve materials for the lesson, students will be able to stay engaged and focused. The students in my classroom would benefit very much from having seat sacks to keep them ready at all times!

Donations to this project will improve my classroom tremendously.

My students deserve a place where they feel at home and know where all of their materials are at all times. Seat sacks will provide them with the proper amount of time during instruction and keep them actively engaged during lessons.
