My Students

My preschool students are amazing in every way. They are bright, inquisitive, and so eager to share their experiences. Our classroom is a welcoming environment for our youngest learners. They deserve a quality education in the most nurturing and safest environment possible. I learn so much about each one during our conversations and strive to give them as much wisdom and love that they give me.

My students will go on and do amazing things in their lives, and I feel blessed to be a part of their journey.

My Project

The challenge to socially distance in the classroom and provide quality instruction is particularly difficult with a preschool age group. This demographic does not currently have access to a Covid 19 vaccine, so my priority is keeping my preschoolers safe. This project would allow all my students to share learning experiences together in an exciting way and provide them with protection in our classroom. Due to outbreaks, At any moment, we must be prepared to all teach and learn from home. Since we all must maintain cohorts to make contact tracing easy, keeping spaces clean is a necessity. This room air purifier would provide them with necessary mask breaks, eating in the classroom, and clean our classroom air throughout the day. Please help me keep the investigation, inquiry, wonder, and excitement going in the safest environment possible
