My Students

This is the first year I will be teaching Kindergarten to a wonderful and creative group of boys and girls at a Title I school. They are excited to learn and come to school each day. It is important to ensure that children enjoy learning. This is what kindergarten should be about.

They will take their joy of learning into the next grade and beyond.

Therefore, they need all the necessary materials that will make them successful, independent, and confident learners. With your help, this can continue.

My Project

My students are coming and I need cleaning materials like Clorox wipes, Kleenex tissues, paper towels and more to make their classroom healthy and clean. There are spills and runny noses and these materials will help to clean it up.

Kindergarten is a crucial time in a child's life.

My students also need notebooks to write in as well as folders to store their work in throughout the year. The different colors are for the different subjects. Please help us keep a healthy, clean and organized classroom this school year through the use of folders, notebooks, paper towels, tissues, Clorox wipes and more.
