My Students

My 15 Prekindergarten students come from a diverse, urban area. More than half of my students come from low-income households. I love that I am their first experience on their educational journey. They are bright-eyed, enthusiastic, and eager to learn! I loved how eager they were when they use to enter my classroom ready to explore and learn. I would love to give them all of the tools to assist them in their learning journey throughout the year but since COVID-19 has shut our school down I would love to enrich their learning experience on the home front.

My Project

Help me give my students a ray of sunshine in such a dark time. I would love to send them care packages to brighten their time at home. They are trying so hard with virtual learning and a care package would help keep their minds preoccupied.

The materials will help make a difference by providing supplies to better assist with their virtual learning as well as a much needed distraction to create.

Once my little learners have the materials they will be able to lift their spirits and put a spark back into our virtual learning.
