My Students

My students are amongst the youngest learners in our public schools. They come in with limited experiences of a formal education, but enthusiastic about learning new things. My hope is to fill each and every one of them with a love for learning, and help them experience a joyful journey into education. I continuously strive to provide the most resources I can for my students because more than half of my students receive free or reduced lunches and have limited resources at home.

It has always been my goal to help my students grow from where they are, to where they can go to reach their full potential, and I know all children can learn in the right environment.

I teach the love of learning with high expectations in a loving, safe environment filled with positive choices. My kindergarteners do active play and exercise throughout the day intermixed with music to keep their brains ready to learn. As a result, they read, write, and absorb concepts more effectively.

My Project

By donating to my project, you will provide my students with a perfect size table and 4 comfortable seats for my young energetic students. My classroom is in need of flexible seating options to elevate student engagement and allow for more flexibility.

Giving my students flexible seating options will not only help improve student attention and focus, but will ultimately increase their academic achievement.

Students learn best when they have some control over where they sit, which is why my students walk in every morning and pick a new seat. I have found that giving my students the free seating option allows them to take control over their own learning. This project will allow me to increase my classroom seating options in a positive way!
