My Students

My students live in lower socioeconomic neighborhoods that require support and resources for learning. One of the biggest challenges my families face is the ability to provide basic necessities for their children.

By providing materials for my students, this will help provide the support needed for students with a disability to help succeed while in the classroom.

A large percentage of our students live in multi-family member homes, foster homes, other family members and friends' homes, and hotels/motels. These students and families may not have the financial freedom to provide extra resources above and beyond what is in the school already. By helping to provide these school supplies, you are helping each student access the school curriculum, become organized, and help with not worrying about what they need to be successful each and every day.

My Project

Preschool students need to be able to access supplies and resources for imaginative play. Pairing the learning with visuals, puppets, and supports will increase the students' engagement as well as want to learn.

Students need puppets and other resources to help with imaginative play, engagement, and digging deeper in their learning when provided extra supports.

Allowing students to have an imaginative play and additional resources during instruction helps with their memory of pre-academic skills and learning. My families come from a low-socioeconomic and cannot always afford supplies that go above and beyond the classroom needs. This grant will provide students with resources to be creative, play, and learn.
