My Students

We are adding another Preschool class to our district. Because we are in a high poverty area we have nothing to start the new class with. I will be working with 3 and 4 year olds.

Early intervention is needed so that all students will start kindergarten with the knowledge they need to be successful.

I am excited to start this new venture for our community because I know that our families need all the help that they can get for their children to be successful members of society.

My Project

With a new preschool class starting we are in need of almost everything. Making the room bright and inviting will go a long way in making the little ones more comfortable and happy.

Special seating for everyone is exciting!

Having a big, bright rug with the alphabet and numbers on it will help the students learn academics as well as sitting in specific spots and not getting into other students' spaces. Cushions and pillows will make it more comfortable for them to lay down to look at books or listen to stories on CD's. I want to make the new classroom as fun as possible.
