My Students

My students are from low income families where sometimes the only love and support they get is when they come to school. I work for a head start program that serve children from the age 6 weeks to 5 years of age. I'm a GSRP teacher my students are 4 and 5 year old getting ready to go to kindergarten.

I treat my students like their my own children.

I would do anything to put a smile on their faces. Which is sometimes a challenge because of the different situations they have to deal with at home. I make it my goal to make sure they know they are loved as soon as they walk through the door.

My Project

I, with the help of your generous donation, would like to give the children in my classroom the opportunity to explore their environment in a different way. One opportunity is to provide them with a real working camera. The camera will give children the chance to explore their surrounding, not only in the classroom, but outside as well. I am also asking for a classroom printer. The printer will allow children to show their peers and loved ones how they envision the world around them. I am excited to see their individual pictures from their perspective!

Thank you for considering my project.

I am eager to make lasting memories with my school children.
