From Kinder To College-I Can Do Anything!

My students need classroom puzzles, posters and other props that present positive career choices!

My Students

Dream Big! Work Hard! I say these words to my kindergarten students daily to encourage and inspire them to be anything they want to be when they grow up!

Many of my students are impoverished.

Over 90% of my class receives free or reduced breakfast and lunch. Over 90% of the students in my class are also second language learners. Despite these challenges, they are also bright, happy students who love coming to school and are eager to learn! I encourage all of my kindergarten students to think and dream about what they want to be when they grow up. For many, they could be the first member of their family to attend college!

My Project

Career puzzles and props will help students visualize themselves doing many different jobs! They will be able to interact with miniature community helpers and people with different abilities. Through language and play, I hope to influence my students in a positive way by helping them to develop a positive attitude about college and career choices!

This project is important because all students deserve the opportunity to discover and dream about growing up, working hard and making a difference!

Your generous donation will help kids go from Kinder to College!
