My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty area, my students are faced with both good and challenging situations. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. All the students at my school want a chance to enhance and reach for the stars.

I want my students to have a great advantage in education.

Many of them are being raised in foster care, single-parent homes, or with a close relative. The demographics in the areas where they live are not conducive to acceptable learning. When my students walk in my door, I want them to identify their exceptional characteristics, develop positive self-esteem, and feel they are cherished. I want them to know that my classroom is a heartfelt, inspiring, and encouraging environment where creativity is encouraged through self-expression and imagination.

My students want to experience their learning using hands-on activities. When I provide an atmosphere of involvement, their learning increases tremendously. Your donation will help give us the materials to make great thinkers and learning fun.

My Project

The students in my class this year and years to come will be able to use these materials to help build the skills they need to move on to the first grade . Puzzles are important educational learning tools for young people as they provide many skills and also provide mental learning benefits and opportunities. Some of the befits of playing with puzzles are developing cognitive skills and fine motor development, helping with problem solving, hand and eye coordination, social skills and self esteem.

A donation to this center project will allow my students to learn these many skills in new and exciting ways.

It is my goal and I intend to do my best to help make this year a positive and effective experience for each of my students.
