My Students

My students are an energetic group of children that love to learn. They enjoy exploring new concepts that have a hands-on component. They love cooperative learning in small groups and taking charge of their own learning.

My classroom consists of children from military families and families that work on a military installation.

Education is important to these families. The future is in my classroom and has the ability to go around the world as my students move to other communities.

My Project

Paint and play dough are some of the fondest memories of school for most of us. My students don't have these basics in our classroom to start the new year. With your help, my students will be able to learn using their tactile senses while exploring basic concepts of Pre K such as writing their name.

Young children love to use paint, play dough, and finger paint to learn how to write letters from the alphabet and numbers.

They also like to make pictures of their families and the world around them. Having supplies besides crayons and markers for them to use will mean the world to us!
