Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

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.

I am going back to teaching Pre-K this year.

This year will be very different due to COVID-19. I will serve approximately 15-20 students for the 2020-2021 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.

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 my 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. So this year, I want to make my students as safe as possible in the classroom and provide items to help them during remote learning.

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!
