My Students

My students are lovable and kind kindergarteners! They are extremely eager to learn and are very appreciative of everything that is given to them. What I enjoy most about teaching them is that they always try hard to please but sometimes it is difficult because my school lacks resources. I would love to give these children everything they deserve.

We've been getting by on what we have but how nice would it be to really enhance these young minds by enriching their learning with supplies that are desperately needed.

My Project

My students need a laminating machine to protect the wonderful stories that they have been creating throughout the school year. A laminator will help their brilliant stories come to life in durable books. We can also use the laminator to preserve their precious art work for many years to come. Our parents will appreciate the long lasting memories that a laminating machine will provide. Laminating their stories and art work will also make them more sturdy so that they can take pride and share them with their friends and families. We are looking forward to using this machine and making wonderful memories.
