I have the best job ever! I teach Pre-K to 3 year olds from active military families in Texas. I teach 2 half day classes and have a total of 32 adorable and energetic students. I am one of 8 Pre-K teachers in our Title I school that supports the neighboring air force base.
Because our early childhood program is so large (over 200 students) there are not enough classrooms inside our school to house all of pre-k classes. We are very thankful to have our classroom in one half of the portable buildings located at the back of our school. We can control our own air conditioning and heat (a perk that any teacher would be thankful to have!) and we are located close to our playground where we love to run and play. The only downside to our classroom is the small space and lack of storage for 16 students in each class. While some of our toys and teaching manipulative's are stored on low shelves for the students to reach, I have had to resort to installing minimal shelving to house the rest of our toys in an orderly fashion. Unfortunately, my students are 3 years old and cannot reach the toys and resources that are located on our walls.
My students are strong willed and independent. I try very hard to ensure that they have self confidence in themselves to realize their full potential and that they can do lots of things if they just try. This storage shelf is just their size and easily accessible to all of my students. By being able to reach materials located on the shelves and in the clear storage bins, my students will continue to gain their independence through the simple act of being able to reach things for themselves.
By funding this proposal, you will help me to bring our classroom materials back down to eye level for my students. With clear storage bins, the students will easily be able to locate their desired puppets, musical instruments, lacing beads, crayon boxes, etc. They will no longer need to wait patiently for one exhausted teacher to do it for them. My students will be able do many things, with your help.
