My Students

I will serve approximately 40 students with my two classrooms combined for the 2019-2020 school year with a wide range of abilities, needs, and concerns. My students are in a low income/high poverty school in which more than 80% of the students receive free or reduced-price meals.

Despite some of the challenges they face in and around their environment, every year my students come to school excited, full of life, and eager to learn.

When children have a strong foundation of learning, they are able to stay on track to remain in school, graduate, and pursue post-secondary education and training to successfully transition into adulthood.

Children make our classroom their home for however long they stay and miss it dearly when they move on. No matter who enters through my classroom doors, they become part of our school family.

My Project

I want to teach my students the proper way to brush and floss so they learn early the importance of good dental hygiene. I plan to send dental hygiene supplies home, along with a note to parents explaining the importance of creating good dental hygiene habits at an early age.

One of our focuses in Pre-kindergarten is to develop good personal habits that will help our students stay healthy.

My students will receive full sizes of toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, and toothbrushes. This will ensure that they have a fresh start, as some have never brushed their teeth at home. Some may not be able to afford these items and this will be a big blessing to them.

We also need a model mouth to teach the students how to properly brush their teeth.

Thank you for your support!
