My Students

My students are engaged and eager to learn. Their unique personalities have helped build a strong classroom community where they learn to respect each other and their differences. They strive daily to be better NKES citizens, as well as gain all the knowledge they can.

Their compassionate hearts inspire me to be the best teacher I can be and provide them with the best learning environment I can.

Our class is made up of students from varying eco-social backgrounds. It is inspiring to see these young children work together in a positive and loving light.

My Project

Our classroom is incredibly humid. Papers can feel damp, posters fold and go limp on the wall, allergies can get a little crazy at times, and glue from projects can get gunky and lose its hold. This dehumidifier would help us to learn in a more comfortable environment where we can focus on the learning topics and not on how uncomfortable we are or what the next poster will be to fall off the wall is going to be. PLUS it gets rid of some allergens that are in the air.

Having a dehumidifier in the room would help with how the classroom feels.

It would help it to feel more comfortable and create a more relaxing place for students to learn and engage with one another.

Thank you for your consideration.
