My Students

I am in my 8th year of education and returning to early childhood education teacher at a priority school in SW DC. Our school has been labeled as a "40-40" school meaning that we are among the lowest-performing schools in DCPS.

100% of our kiddos receive free and reduced lunch.

Our school population also has a high number of special education students. In my room, I have 14 eager three and four-year-olds who are ready to take over the world! I think that is it amazing that we all come from different backgrounds, but together we are a Family!

With your help, we can create a loving, warm learning environment for my Pre-schoolers!

My Project

My Pre-K 3 & 4 students enjoy learning through play! Some have expressed that they enjoy reading and numbers. To ensure that all of my students have the opportunity to engage in literacy and numeracy while playing in centers I will need a laminator to laminate the content. Laminating the pictures and content will ensure that my students can engage for more than one day before things get destroyed. I’ll also need lots of Velcro to secure the content, which also allows my students to move the information around their center. The goal is to create a Hands-On, Student-Centered Learning Environment!!
