My Students

I teach a dynamic group of fabulous kindergarten students in an extremely diverse school in New York. My students love reading funny stories, writing, poetry, creating art, exploring in science, learning new words, building, dancing, singing, playing math games, playing with puppets, and learning new facts. We are obsessed with our composting worm bin!

My class absolutely loves our beloved puppet, Chef Lotsa Words.

He cooks up sight words, poems, vocabulary words, and books each day in his "magic" pot. My students are funny, enthusiastic, inquisitive, compassionate, and sweet.

My Project

I would love to start the school year off in September with all the supplies that our classroom will need. We need lots of supplies! We need dry erase markers, tisues, markers, colored pencils, flair pens, tape, copy paper, Clorox wipes and more! The Clorox wipes will keep our classroom clean and looking great! We need birthday crowns and awards. I need a new train whistle for directing our lines during field trips. We will use the flair pens for writing and drawing. We will use the Expo markers for solving math problems and for handwriting practice. We need more art dough and a stroller for our play center time. We will use these classroom supplies on a daily basis!

Your donation will provide my students with the supplies that we will need throughout the year.
