My Students

I teach a NC Pre-K class at a Head Start center. I have 18 children in my class. I serve children from low-income families that may not have resources at home to supply their children with things that we can give them in the classroom.

We do many learning activities throughout the day in our classroom.

We do reading, writing, music, discovery, small and large groups, outdoor learning and play. We provide many things for the children and families we serve that they may not be exposed to otherwise.

My Project

We want our students to succeed throughout life. By giving them tools they can use, they are better able to accomplish this goal. With these backpacks filled with school supplies, the children will have a head start going into kindergarten.

Children do not always get to start their school year off with the needed supplies.

We want to make sure they can be successful without worries about not having things needed in class. When children are prepared, they gain the confidence they need to soar through school. Having these basic school supplies will help my students be prepared and ready to learn each day.
