My Students

My students are sweet, kind, caring, love to explore and love to learn new things each day. I teach Kindergarten students in an inner-city public elementary school. We have a diverse population of students that live throughout the city which makes our classroom such a wonderful community of learners.

My students are energetic, inquisitive five year olds who come to school each day with a smile on their face, eager and excited to see what they will learn as they walk into our classroom.

I love coming to school every day and teaching my students. My students need additional resources to be successful and I'm hoping together we can make that happen.

My Project

My students need a mailbox organizer that I can place each of their names on. This will give us one organized location for all of their daily communication so that nothing gets lost. This classroom mailbox will help each student locate and recognize their name, give them an individual mail slot for their communication between home and school and a spot for their assignments and projects that we complete during class.

This organizer will be extremely helpful for my students and will make them feel responsible, important and excited that they have their own mailbox with their name on it.

My students have important information, flyers, fun and creative projects and this organizer will keep them all in one place. We want to make sure that all of their papers stay safe so they can show their parents once they arrive home. This will also help build stronger parent-teacher-child communication which is so important. Thank you for reading about my students and for your continued support of educators!
