My Students

My kids are excited to learn and eager to be engaged in whatever we do as a class. This is an excitement that I want to encourage and maintain! They are my reason "why" I do what I do and they deserve the best education available with the best tools I can get to provide that education to them.

My students are preparing for kindergarten, and they need your help to get them there successfully!

With the proper tools, our thriving room can blossom to its' full potential.

My Project

Most of my students come from low income households and are navigating difficult family dynamics - our classroom is their safe place where we can learn together in playful and impactful ways. My students have never been exposed to a tool such as this one, and I know it is going to blow their minds!

The amazing thing about the light up play table is how versatile it is - my students can play with transparent blocks on top of it, look at age appropriate x-rays, and make predictions about what objects will be transparent and which ones will not.

This item will be used every single day we are in the classroom and I know it will be well loved!
