My Students

Our students are preschoolers aged 3 and 4 years old, many turning 5 during their second year in the program. We have inclusive preschool classroom settings when we are engaged in in-person instruction. Due to Covid -19 we are currently providing remote learning experiences.

My Project

This project is for all of the students in the Red Village, which includes my classroom and three others. Typically at school we provide materials the are representative and reflective of our students' variety of skin tones. This includes but is not limited to paint, crayons, and paper. My hope is to be able to have every child in our village feel seen and to draw themselves and those that they love.

Representation in all areas of life and school is crucial.

Please help us to continue to provide this to our students and families while we are out of our classrooms.
