My Students

I have a wonderful group of energetic students who are full of life. Every day they work very hard to reach their goals.

My students come from different backgrounds in a Title I school located in South Central Los Angeles.

More than half of my students are from low-income households. My students are eager to learn and be creative every day. They are sweet, respectful, responsible, happy, and curious students who love to explore the endless possibilities in our classroom. They are amazing kids that deserve the best education. I feel blessed to teach such an amazing group of students.

My Project

The markers, crayons, paper, yardstick, and paint that I am requesting will provide my Pre-K students with meaningful hands-on experiences that will help them to learn and start developing their fine motor skills by learning to color, paste, cut, draw, and also to develop their listening skills by following simple directions given for each project. My students will be using the art materials on a daily basis during independent time and centers time. They will be using the lap desk while creating their art projects. By having the arts and crafts supplies on hand, they will be able to learn and express themselves more effectively.

Thank you in advance for providing my students with the essential materials to get them prepared for success.

Your kind donations will make a tremendous difference in all of my students' academic lives.
