My Students

Our school aims to provide a challenging and comprehensive education for Kindergarten through 8th grade students, preparing them to be inquisitive and analytic lifelong learners in the 21st Century. We provide students with bilingual and biliterate skills in Mandarin Chinese and English.

I am one of the first grade teachers (we call ourselves the Tiger Class) dedicated to teaching 26 students from various socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.

I want to provide my students with the best education I can in a fun and comfortable learning environment.

My Project

If funded, I will use the air conditioner to help cool my students in their sunny south facing classroom. It gets quite hot during the summer months. I'll also use the printer to help supplement the school master printer to print my student's homework packs for them. In addition to this, I will use math blocks and games to help my students to learn 3-D shapes in a fun and a better way!

This year I do not have a dedicated teaching assistant so having a printer in the classroom with allow me to spend more teaching time with my students.

My students rely on my printouts as many do not have iPads or laptops at home to do homework, therefore we rely on distributing paper homework.

Thank you for your consideration.
