My Students

I teach an awesome and eager group of kindergarten students in an inner-city school where 100% of students receive free school lunch. Most of my students come from a family background where they lack academic and financial support to enrich their academic studies. The majority of these students come from families where parents are too busy working and lack the language or education to help them with their schoolwork. Therefore, the role of the teacher is extremely vital to their learning.

Despite these setbacks, my students are motivated learners who rely heavily on teachers and school support to help them become successful in life.

Our school motto is to be respectful, responsible, and scholarly. In order to help them achieve these goals, I must provide them with the best classroom environment, full of the proper supplies and guidance.

My Project

I am simply requesting the most basic essentials for my kindergarten students! On the first day of my kindergarten classroom, I was told the school was out of crayons, kindergarten pencils, and they don't carry colors that represent multi-ethnic people. I would have to wait for the next supply order in a few weeks. That was ridiculous! Therefore, I am requesting for these basic supplies to start off 2019 with a bang!

The pencils, erasers, and crayons will be put to use immediately!

My students will enjoy learning with these new supplies. What student wouldn't be excited to use brand new materials!
