My Students

Our classroom is a very diverse preschool classroom. We have students that range in age from 3-5 years old of all academic levels. My students face many challenges inside and outside of the classroom but we are here to minimize the academic gap they are facing. We are here to create a positive school going experience where my students are encouraged to explore themselves.

My students are eager to learn and explore all aspects of life.

I want to open as many doors for them as possible and give them the brightest future that they all deserve.

My Project

Before a child can learn, first their basic needs must be met. For young children that also means they need to have the security of feeling those needs are met at school. When young children have an accident we need to encourage them to keep trying to be potty trained.

The clothes you will be purchasing will allow us to change them in to clean clothes and continue our learning without much downtime.

We ask families to send in a change of clothes in case of an accident, but sometimes that is not possible. This can be embarrassing for the child and hardship for the parent that may have to leave work.
