My Students

My students are ages birth through 5 year old and their families. Our school district is one of the poorest (economically) within our state. We provide free Pre-K to all preschoolers to make sure money isn't an issue to get education. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 65% of our students receiving free lunch and/or reduce lunch and 25% special education.

My goal is to provide families extra opportunities to engage in their child's learning.

My Project

The Ready for Preschool Backpack will provide the parents materials and activities to complete at home that will enhance their child's learning. The backpacks will be sent home on a weekly basis with a new activity to play for the week and brought back the next week to obtain a new activity.

I believe that the family is the most important teacher in their child's life.

Many of our families do not have the means to buy educational activities or know what type of activities to get for their child. It is my goal to be able to give them that activity to increase their child learning within their own home.
