My Students

I have the pleasure to teach 18 of the sweetest 4 and 5 year old pre-kindergarten students. The students qualify for the program due to special needs, academic challenges and family financial distress. Our school is a Title I school on the outskirts of Charlotte, NC.

Several of my students have special learning needs, and all have financial challenges making ends meet at home.

But, they all come to school ready to learn and love every minute of it. Our school is fortunate to have several garden boxes where students help plant and harvest crops. Hands-on learning is essential for giving students a sense of accomplishment. Your donation will help my students in the classroom and broaden their experiences.

My Project

Classroom management and organization are intertwined. While rules and routines influence student behavior, classroom organization affects the physical elements of the classroom, making it a more productive environment for its users. How the classroom environment is organized influences the behavior in it.

The more organized I am, the better I can facilitate the lessons for the students.

Being an organized teacher means better lessons, better lessons mean the students are more engaged. During a lesson, I use many types of materials such as books, dry erase markers, musical instruments, crayons, counting manipulatives, and much more. This cart would be perfect to help me organize all my materials.
