I am looking for a way to upgrade my kindergarten classroom. My 9th year of teaching kindergarten at Lucama Elementary is almost finished. I started teaching at Lucama as soon as I graduated from East Carolina University, NC in 1996. I have a certification in Birth-Kindergarten, so I will be teaching kindergarten for many more years. I am very fortunate to be able to teach in such a wonderful school. However, our budget is not the best. Each teacher is given a certain amount each year depending on how many children are in his/her class. At Lucama, each teacher has money taken out of his/her account when he/she uses a copy machine. I send many materials home for my parents and I use many copies in my room. To make a long story short, I never have any money left over at the end of a school year to purchase new materials for the next year. Kindergarten in Wilson County, NC is hard. We teach reading, writing, and math strategies, and most of the time I have to start at "rock bottom" (teaching the difference between letters and numbers). We have high standards for our children and I like to have new resources I can use to teach my children. As you probably know 5-6 year old children have very short attention spans. If I teach the same way all of the time the kids get "bored" and become inattentive. Also, these children learn in different ways. Most of the time I can not teach a concept using only one way. Some learn by seeing, some by hearing, some by touching, some all three. I would love to have some new resources I can use in my room to keep my kids involved in their learning! I have a lot of faith in my children and it is my job to provide a positive and educational environment.
