My Students

My 23 6-year-old students are the best. They come from very little so I love to provide a safe calm and positive environment when coming to school. I love to be their positive role model in their life. I love when they share their stories with me. A lot of them have come from Africa and I love when they tell me about it.

I have always wanted to teach kindergarten since I can remember.

I am finally now teaching it and I like to show my students that dreams can come true!

My Project

All my student families are low- income. My students aren't able to afford school supplies to school. We love to do projects and I would love to provide them with different fun materials to use! These school supplies will help them with daily and also for special projects.

I would love to provide them with all that they need to learn.

I want to be able to provide them with different materials so that they are able to create and explore different things. We love to do different projects and I want to be able to provide paint, construction paper, markers, crayons so that we are able to continue to do these fun class projects!
