My Students

My classroom is a Head Start class that is designed for children and families from lower-income households. My students range in age from 3 to 5 years old and all at different stages of development. We are also a very diverse group; made up of different cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and more. These characteristics are what make my classroom and our school unique and special.

We focus on preparing our students for kindergarten and to have a love for learning throughout life.

This happens through many hands-on experiences as well as real life experiences. The more fun and exciting I am able to make learning the more children tend to learn and absorb.

My Project

By making a donation of colorful ink to our Head Start school, it will benefit our student's learning by letting them be able to see the difference between colors, actually see what they are looking at. For example, an orange basketball or a red ball. Furthermore, the assignments and letters that are being handed out as homework will have a much better appearance than just a boring black and white page to look at. Our Head Start would greatly appreciate your donation towards our classrooms. Thank you for your time and consideration!
