My Students

Dear Donors,

I am a Kindergarten teacher.

I have the great privilege to be part of my young students lives. They come from all parts of the world. Countries of Mexico, Central America, Russia, Vietnam and Iran. My school is 91 percent lower economically disadvantaged. My students receive free breakfast, free lunch, and free hot supper at the end of the day.

There is a quote that I love:

A teacher who loves, teaching teach children to love learning. This is so true. I come to work every day excited to meet my class. They always tell me how much they love school, and want to learn. Every day is an exciting day for them. I am always thinking of fun lessons to get them engaged in their learning. As their first time in school I have an enormous responsibility to make sure that they feel safe, excited to learn, and give them the foundation to be life-long learner. Will you help me on my journey?

My Project

I am so excited to request Lego for my Kindergarten class! Lego set is one of the most educational toys available for problem solving, creativity, cooperative play and engineering. I would love to see my students use the Lego to build towers, construct bridges and use their imagination to create any idea they have. Why are Lego so important? They offer the perfect opportunity to build their fine motor skills. In Kindergarten this is so important. Using these manipulative will build their muscles in their hands into other other skills such as writing. Lego will help them with cooperative play. Starting at a young age, I am teaching my students how to work with others, use their imagination and to build confidence in themselves. Please help us with our dream of building and learning.
