My Students

I teach pre-k at a Title I school in North Carolina. Our school is predominantly low-income - all of our students receive universal free breakfast, and the majority receive free or reduced lunch. We are blessed to have a local church sponsorship that provides high-need families with backpacks of food for weekends and holidays, extra tutoring to students who struggle academically, and a WatchDOGS program that encourages fathers to volunteer in their children's classrooms.

My pre-k students are four and five years old, and just as curious about the world around them as you would imagine.

The idea behind public pre-k is to provide at-risk students with learning opportunities that level the playing field for them, to create equity between our students and other upcoming kindergarteners. My students are active, noisy, full of questions, and all-around excited to explore. It's the way we learn!

My Project

After a few Donors Choose projects and a few personal purchases, our classroom science center is almost complete! I have requested a human body model (to create a "My Body" bin), magnet tiles (to be used in a STEM tub), and pretend play items like lab coats, test tubes, and beakers to help my students feel like real life scientists!

My pre-k students are always so excited to play with new items, never even knowing that they're learning the whole time.

These new items will help to complete our science center and keep students engaged in their free play learning!
