My Students

My students are Awesome(with a capital A). Everyday I get the opportunity to open a world of learning to these special little people. Being their first school experience, it is so important to help them grow socially, emotionally and academically.

I am able to be their gateway to education and help build life-long learners that enjoy coming to school and being a part of a "family." Every one of my students value their learning and work very hard to be successful.

I am proud of all my students and I absolutely love teaching them.

My Project

My students are so important and play is a part of the developmental process that is needed to ensure development of the whole child. This project is being requested to provide my students with a play area and with equipment that is developmentally appropriate for them. My students are very small and I want to create a area for play that provides equipment that is suitable for their development.

Play not only gives children the opportunity to be creative but also helps in the development of social skills and physical development.

This equipment can be used both indoor and outdoor and will provide opportunities for each student to explore and learn. I am hoping that this project can be funded and my students given this wonderful opportunity.
