My Students

I teach at a Title I school where all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. My students live in a low-income area in St. Louis, Missouri. The students I work with come from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds. Many of my students deal with stress and trauma-related experiences that no child should have to deal with at this age.

My students are fun-loving and are eager to learn!

Regardless of what they are going through they just want to be at school! This will be my second year teaching and I can truly say I want to buy everything for my classroom that can help my students learn and grow. It was a total shock looking in all of the teachers' rooms and knowing they bought everything in there! As teachers, we just want what is best for our students and as a new teacher that is all I want!

My Project

My classroom is in need of new reading material. I am trying new reading material that is more engaging for my kindergarten classroom.

Theses books will help my students want to learn and want to read every day.

The books are colorful, fun, and exciting! These books are also age appropriate for my students! I would like to print out rich and engaging projects to go along with each story each week. Along with all of the books a printer will help us create and display our creations and lessons in the room and in the hallways. A colorful classroom helps brighten the mood for everyone.
