My Students

My kindergarten students are eager to learn and are especially motivated to work independently. My school is a Pre K-5 public school in a diverse community. Half of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

My students love to be challenged with new tasks.

They are so excited to learn, and I provide them with lessons to help each and every child learn to their potential. My students learn best when I give them opportunities for creative hands-on activities throughout the day.

My Project

My students love to use their creative minds! They currently use markers, colored pencils, and crayons to draw in our art center.

They would love to have an easel and paint as a wonderful addition to our art center!

For some, this is their first school experience, and I want to make it fun! They are motivated to learn and do especially well with hands-on materials. My students love opportunities when they can be creative, while learning at the same time.

Painting is a wonderful way for children to express themselves. It also provides them with relaxation and builds their confidence.
