My Students

My students are creative and curious 4 and 5 year olds. They love hands-on activities that are engaging and that allows them to think and find solutions. They come to school each day ready to experience new adventures in order to grow both personally and academically.

We are a multi-cultural pre-K inclusion classroom.

Our families are hard working, low income to middle class citizens, who send their precious children to our school. Our school is a public school in NJ that serves approximately 450, 4 and 5 years old students.

My Project

My classroom would like to have a laminating machine and several laminating packs to use to preserve precious works of art, writing pieces and teaching materials through out the year. When the art work and writing pieces are laminated they become permanently protected therefore, "special" for the students and their families to enjoy. It will also be used to protect and make sturdy any classroom learning materials that are made to teach a lesson.

All donations will make a tremendous difference in the lives of these children, as well as their families.

Giving the children a head start in learning how to appreciate their "works of art" will increase their chances of succeeding in life. Academically, socially, and spiritually, these children and their families will be given a platform to build their future. I am only a servant to these families and with these materials, I will be able to positively motivate and mold the children to learn and succeed.
