My Students

I work in an inner-city school with students who are curious about the world around them but might not necessarily have the tools and opportunities to do so. They are an active bunch that enjoys new and exciting things, hands-on activities, and movement! I have a classroom of 25 students ranging from the ages of four to six from various backgrounds and cultures. I have students with disabilities, students learning English, and students that may have a tough home life. We call the school a 'safe and happy place' where they can be themselves and relax for a few hours while we learn.

Every day is a new adventure with them, and they teach me, as much as I teach them.

I am constantly amazed by their determination, adult personalities, eagerness to learn, and the smiles on their faces regardless of hardships they may face.

I strive to show them that learning can be fun and to show them possibilities that await them as they continue to grow up. I want them to be the best possible version of themselves and never give up on their dreams.

My Project

These tools are common items used within my kindergarten classroom! By helping fund this project, you will be helping my students have access to learning materials from home to make the remote school experience easier and more enjoyable! Materials such as counters, cubes, and flashcards can help them get hands-on experience with math, and notebooks, pencils, whiteboards, and other writing materials for ELA content! Play-doh can give fine motor support as well as provide sensory breaks for students and be used as another choice of manipulative for activities. There are also a few materials that I, the classroom teacher, can use to better support the students as well as we embark on this new educational journey together!
