Police Officers Are a Positive Part of Our Community!

My students need books about police officers for police officers to read during their volunteer time in our classroom and also laminating sheets to keep our games sturdy, reusable and long-lasting!

My Students

Teaching kindergarten is my passion. I can't think of any grade I would rather teach and I definitely would not want to leave the classroom to be an administrator because my heart is with the students I work with each and everyday. I feel I was born to be a kindergarten teacher.

I am always looking for new resources to bring into my classroom to set my students up for success.

Many of my students are from low-income households and they don't have access to resources that many other children are fortunate enough to have.

Despite the daily challenges they face, my kindergarten students love to work, love to wiggle, love to read, love to build their independence, love to learn new things and love to come to school. They make me smile everyday and they inspire me to be the best teacher I can be. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with such amazing kids and it is my goal to inspire them to work hard and achieve greatness!

My Project

We are lucky enough to have police officers that volunteer their time reading to our Kindergarten and First-Grade students once a week.

This volunteer work is a great way for police officers to reach our students in a positive way.

A lot of students may have only had negative experiences with police officers, especially with all of the recent controversy in the media. Unfortunately, because of students' past experiences, there are always a few students that feel very uncomfortable when the police officers arrive in our classroom for the first time. It's after ongoing, positive experiences with these police officers that engage them in positive, relatable and meaningful ways that ALL of my students are able to view police officers as the important, safe community leaders that they are intended to be.

The police officers always take time after reading to answer my students' questions, show them their badge and other tools that they use to protect and serve our community.

They are always flexible and read whatever story I choose for them but I think these books about police officers will be excellent resources that I can offer to them when they come in to read to my students. They will be a great asset to springboard conversations between students and police officers about the importance of police officers in our community.

I will also be spending time over the summer creating new Reading and Math games for my new students. In order to use these games year after year everything I create will need to be laminated. It's amazing how quickly we go through laminating sheets! I can't ever seem to keep them in stock. These laminating sheets will help keep our games sturdy, clean and reusable for many years to come.

Thank you for considering us!
