My Students

My amazing students are all ages 3 and 4. Each one of my students is special and unique in their own way. They love giving hugs, high fives, and learning new things each day.

They come to school each day full of energy and curiosity.

They remind me each and every day why I love being a PreK teacher!

My goal as their teacher is to give my students the tools and resources they need to reach their highest potential.

My Project

In our Head Start classroom, we are not just teachers. We take care of small maintenance and all cleaning too. All 3 classrooms and office share 1 vacuum. Everyone is cleaning at the same time and we have to wait turns for the use of the vacuum.

My students and I all spend lots of time sitting and playing on our floors, so they need to be clean and sanitized daily.

Having a vacuum in our classroom would allow us to use it throughout the day instead of just once at the end of the day. This will help keep our room and carpets cleaner and healthier. The steam mop will allow us to better sanitize the floors and keep yucky germs away.
