My Students

I work in a wonderful school with a terrific team of teachers and staff. I am blessed to be working at a school with so much support. My classroom is home to 40 very eager and enthusiastic preschoolers. The majority of my students are low-income, bilingual learners. My students are my inspiration and they challenge me to open my mind every day. I owe it to them to provide them with nothing but the best. I hope to always be able to provide them with materials that will help inspire their hearts and minds.

My Project

Preschool students are always in need of some basic classroom materials like Play-Doh, easel paper and sensory table materials. We use these items almost everyday! Unfortunately, these items don't keep long because of germs and we are constantly having to replace them.

Your donation will help keep the magic of painting and sensory playing alive.

Play-Doh is a staple in our classroom because students with special needs use it as a sensory tool. My students are preparing for kindergarten use it to help form letters and numbers, and other students just want to have fun with it and form sculptures! The water beads are also a wonderful item to add to our sensory bin. My students love to paint just about everyday. We are always in need of easel paper for everyday painting and special art projects.

Please help us replenish these basic materials in our classroom to continue the learning in our classroom!
