My Students

I teach an energetic group of 20 artistic, creative, and inquisitive 4 year old students in a 4K Title 1 program here in South Carolina. The Child Development program offers various opportunities and materials for my students to learn and thrive. I always encourage parents to get involved with their children's learning by inviting them to join us in many of our planned activities, sending books for them to read, or just stopping by our classroom to spend time with their children.

In my classroom, I believe that my students learn through play and encourage them to imagine, make-believe, and to pretend every day.

Since most of my students are English Language Learners, they learn best through visual aids and picture labels. I've always encouraged their learning styles by providing a colorful and print rich environment. In turn, my students have "published" their own books as the author and illustrator, send letters and "party invitations" to their friends, and they enjoy learning the ABCs through our class books with their pictures under the 1st letter of their names. It is amazing how they make connections from their learning with their environment and vice versa.

My Project

The preschool program I work for is composed of 31 4K classrooms that are housed within our district's elementary schools. In the school where my CD class is housed in, we are limited to how much we can print every month. I am left to choose which students' work can be printed and I end up using my own personal printer at home. Since my school computer does not support a non-district issued printer, having a laptop will be essential. This laptop will be used for everything! My students can use this laptop during our small group activities. They can print their work from and print activities from They can also print their awards from At the same time, I can use it for assessments, lesson planning, student documentation, communication with parents, etc.

Having easy and unlimited access to a computer connected to a printer in our classroom will allow my students to have their creations ready as needed.

The dynamic nature of my classroom makes printing children's work, our classroom books, other materials challenging especially when teachers do not have access to the copiers, only office staff can release our prints. Working in a Title 1 program, most of my families do not have access to a computer or have an email account. In order to keep those families engaged and informed of our classroom activities, projects, and trips, I have to print them copies in English and Spanish. The laptop and printer I chose are solid investments toward efficiency and lower ink cost.
