My Students

I teach at a Title I school in North Miami where most of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. My students are faced with many challenges, both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges, I have an amazing class of 25 kindergarten students, who are eager to learn and explore.

My students are creative, curious, motivated, full of energy, and deserve to have access to all the materials necessary to be successful.

My goal is to ensure that my students have all the tools that they need in order to be successful in school.

My Project

My students need a binding machine with all its accessories binding combs, cover and back sheets, laminating sheets, Reader's Theater books and puppets. They will imagine, create and bind their own story books to perform in class. Reader's Theater will help my students develop fluency, increase comprehension, create confidence and improve self image.

Reader's Theater helps build confidence in speaking and reading through performance.

It offers all students the opportunity to practice and become confident readers. The puppets are great for students who are shy or reluctant to speak out loud. They show less inhibition behind the puppets.

My young learners will love making and performing their own plays. Thank you in advance for your support.
