My Students

My students are special because they are our youngest of learners and their learning lays the foundation to build upon as their education expands. I have seen my students grow physically and mentally over the course of the year. Watching them learn and their little faces light up is the reason I teach.

I teach at an Early Childhood Center that houses 90% free lunch.

Our school is located in the downtown area. Many of our children do not get the privilege of stepping away from their own neighborhood to experience other cultures and other lifestyles that our community holds. Its because of this and many other reasons that I want to continue to give back to our students.

My Project

Our children need new kitchen furniture. We have some older furniture that needs to be replaced. This furniture will give our children the experience with a microwave, real like faucets, and the sturdiness furniture needs without the fear of something breaking or falling over.

With this new furniture, our children can experience play in their most creative way.

Some of our children never get to experience this kind of play at home, but we have the opportunity to allow them to play to their full potential.

Please consider donating to our cause. The children love when we get the chance to have new stuff to play with and this would put the biggest smile on their faces. Thank you
