My Students

My students are our earliest learners. They come in with the natural wonder and excitement of all young people. The students I teach come from struggling homes with a very high level of poverty and homelessness. Many of our families struggle to meet basic needs, so I hope to ensure my students have all educational needs met in a warm, caring, and fun environment. I strive to teach students a love of learning and to never let go of the wonder they all have at five years old.

My Project

With brooms and dustpans students will be able to clean up after themselves and take ownership of their classroom. Baby wipes will enable students to clean up after eating the amazing fresh fruits and vegetables that are provided for snacks. Dawn dish soap will be used for general cleaning of the classroom and sometimes, just plain FUN! All requested items will be used to help students keep clean and healthy while at school as many of our students come to school and are around many peers which often bring many viruses and illnesses. Please consider our class to help us keep healthy and clean so we can do our beat learning!
