My Students

As a teacher working with students who come from low income households, I am committed to making a difference in their school lives. Many students have challenging lives at home and come to school to learn and have fun. The school gives children, like the ones in my classroom, an opportunity to learn, have fun, and succeed in school.

My students learn best through hands-on activities and play.

I love watching my students being scientists at work, artists making creations, readers looking at books, writers expressing their thoughts, and so much more. The children are building on their social skills and school readiness skills all day long.

My Project

My students need to learn about money. They need to learn the basics such as the names of bills and coins. To make this subject interesting for three and four year old children they need hands on materials and interesting books. I am requesting more bills and coins that look realistic to replace the play money we have in the classroom. I am also requesting a toy ATM machine. The children love the toy cash register and the ATM will be exciting for them to use as well. Many have seen their parents drive up to an ATM to take out money and now they will be able to use an ATM as well. Finally I am requesting books about financial literacy that will bring together both math and literacy.
