My Students

I am a passionate teacher of Kindergarten students in the Foothills of South Carolina. Our Title I school has a diverse population with a multitude of needs. I thrive on making a difference in the lives of these children. With your help, I can enhance my instruction and provide a more robust and warm learning environment. Each day in our classroom starts with upbeat music that reminds us that by working hard and loving each other we will have another awesome day. Thank you for helping

My Project

I like to provide a variety of seating options in our classroom. When students have choice about where they do their work they are more productive. Two of the tables in my classroom are low to the ground. Four years ago I purchased a set of ten pillows for seating at these tables. Since the low tables are a favorite of many students the pillow have become very worn and flat. These new, well made discs, will be the perfect replacement for our low table seating. I appreciate you considering helping to address this need in our classroom! Many thanks!
