My Students

I teach very spirited pre-K students from low-income homes. They each have their own distinct personalities, learning needs, and background histories. Most of the time, pre-K is their first experience with the joys of learning and social interaction. My students have not had exposure to the alphabet, counting, books, or technology.

My job is to teach them to love learning!

I want students to leave my room with a solid foundation of knowledge and a love of learning that will stay with them forever.

My Project

Our Reading Center has limited space right now and it's extremely crowded. Only a few students can utilize the Reading Center at a time. This combination sofa and storage unit would create much more space for the children. Along with over 30 books that we change each week, we have puppets, felt board stories, magnet boards, a listening center, and a miniature dollhouse for the students to enjoy. Several of my students also enjoy playing "teacher" and reading books to their classmates. This sofa combo is a cute and comfortable place for my Pre-K friends to spend quality time together.
