My Students

I teach in a full day preschool classroom with 24 children. These children live in a low-income area where many of them come to school without proper shoes, jackets, and food. Regardless of what's happening at home, these children come to school cheerful, eager, and energetic to learn and explore new things. I enjoy working in this area because it is so rewarding.

I believe my students are entitled to have the best education that's desirable for them.

My classroom is like a second home for my students; most of them spend more than eight hours a day with me. They use my classroom as a place for warmth, love, and to escape their troubles. As a teacher, it is very important for me to keep my children inspired, engaged and passionate about learning because these young children are the future.

Your generous donation will remarkably enhance their first learning experience. Thank you for helping me make a difference in the lives of these young learners.

My Project

Two weeks ago, we had a stem project funded from a wonderful donor and I still cannot thank him enough for his kindness toward my students' learning. My students love building.

When they build, they are so engaged and creative in their own unique way.

I love to watch and observe them when they are building with friends and sometimes on their own. We were very fortunate to have a couple of stem hands-on learning toys in the classroom now, but unfortunately, we need storage spaces to store our stem toys. The rolling storage cart will help us store our toys. We will use the pencil sharpener to sharpen pencils as the students record their data down on paper as they are building. The marble roll will be a great addition to our stem center area so that my students can build whatever their imagination takes them. So please consider helping me and my students so that we can get the materials we need to learn and grow.
