My Students

Our school is located in an urban district in Paterson, NJ, which has many challenges. Each of my students bring a unique personality that contributes to the class culture.

My students are an amazing group of learners.

They come from a diverse background and are very curious about everything! They love to learn, play, sing, and dance. They are naturally curious, fun, and have an amazing love for school!

Their enthusiasm for everything around them helps me see that the future is going to be amazing and I want to be a part of that.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door!

My project consist of preparing my Pre-K class for Kindergarten.

I would like to give my entire class a book bag filled with all the essentials needed to start school in September. This is a little incentive for a job well done throughout the academic year. This will also help the parents who are unable to purchase these items with ease.

Welcome to Kindergarten!!!
