My Students

I see our students as the little caterpillar from the story "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" written by Eric Carle. Preschool is the first school experience for our students and they come to us excited to learn and grow. As we teach them new concepts and they experience new themes and academic concepts, they continually grow into beautiful butterflies, ready and prepared to fly into kindergarten.

Our class consists of 20 students from diverse backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses.

We service students identified with specials needs, students with English as their second language, and students who are peer models.

Our school is located in the urban school district of Cleveland, OH where 100% of our students are on free or reduced meals.

My Project

Preschool is all about playing and exploring! With that being said my students and I are often on our classroom carpets playing. Let’s face it, we get messy! Messy is fun, however messy is also a lot of work to clean up! In the afternoon my students nap on their mats on the floor, but I would love to be able to have the floor vacuumed while they are out of the classroom eating lunch. This will help reduce clean ups and also keep my classroom allergen and germ free. Our vacuum we currently have in the school is outdated and broken half of the time. This new vacuum will help keep my classroom tidy and ready for my students!
