My Students

Every day, my little preschoolers come to school wearing a smile, ready to learn and play! They all come from different backgrounds and have a wide range of abilities and skills.

My students speak Arabic, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Pashto, Rohingya, Urdu, and Yoruba!

We love and appreciate the great diversity in our preschool classroom. We respect and celebrate all of the different cultures that our students come from.

It is such a pleasure working with these young boys and girls, who make us smile and make each day brighter. They are a very happy bunch of children who work hard to be kind and help one another. We are so incredibly lucky to have such a great group of students this school year.

My Project

In my preschool classroom, choosing centers (or interest areas) is an essential part of our daily routine. The students have become really good at choosing interest areas in the classroom such as the art center, the blocks center, the discovery center, the dramatic play center, and so on. Unfortunately, we do not have a block storage cabinet so that the children can keep the classroom blocks neat and organized.

My students need an innovative block storage system that is readily accessible for them.

They love building with the blocks every day they are at school. It would be so nice for them to have a storage cabinet that includes handy labels that show children where each block goes, so they can put them away independently. We hope you can help our students!
