My Students

I have been teaching preschool for seven years. I love teaching young minds and I learn more and more each year.

My Pre-K kiddos are all 3 and 4 years old and very curious about the world around them!

They love listening to stories, creating art projects and of course getting messy.

My school is located in Garden City, Michigan. We are a very diverse school full of amazing staff and students! I am honored to be working in the community of Garden City!

My Project

A light table would be such a great addition to my classroom! My children are three and four years old and are very curious about the world around them. Having a light table would open up endless possibilities for learning and exploring!

Three and four year olds need hands-on activities to learn about numbers, shapes, ​and letters.

By adding a light table, they could learn these concepts by using their hands and imaginations.

We would really appreciate any donation for this project. Not only would it add more exploration and investigation but also LEARNING and FUN! Thank you so much!
