My Students

I have 17 wonderfully diverse,loving,caring and eager learners who love to explore the different materials in the classroom. Most of my students live in low income homes who family members work more than one job to support their families. Even though some are faced with hardship these children come to school eager to learn and with love in their hearts. It is a joy to teach these children everyday. These children want to learn. Please Help Us grow and learn!!

My Project

Please we need some big items to help our classroom. On top of the manipulative and games we are asking for, our sand and water table doesn't hold sand very well. Our bookshelf is to large and books get lost in the shelf. Who wouldn't want another chair on our library so we can read a good book? We could also use the cube as our quiet corner so our children can rest and relax independently .

We need new drying rack that would hold our drying artwork without it falling.

The art easel would be a big hit with my students and would help us organize the paint better for them to have access to daily.

Please make our dreams come true, donate to our classroom and help make my students futures bright. They are eager to learn and your generous donation would make their school year.
