My Students

This is my first year back in preschool since being in first grade and I am truly excited to be innovative with my preschool students. My students have made a big impact on my teaching career in a way that most people cannot comprehend. They are curious and just are so spontaneous and just love exploring. My goal is to expose them to as much literacy books that I can this school year. They make me feel special daily and this is why I decided to do this donors page to give back to them.

My Project

My students are in need of a listening library! Please help us by supplying our books and CD's for our library. We are excited to expand our love for literacy and also being independent in our preschool classroom! We are excited to see our project fully funded so that we can enjoy our good reading books that our teacher has read to us on our own. We can repeat words in the book by listening to the story and we can practice our words. This will help us expand our knowledge in words and our language acquisition will be improved at this grade level. We are excited and will be waiting for our project to fully come to life in our classroom. Thank you!
