My Students

My students are a great example of how America is a fantastic country to live! My students come from a very diverse population ranging from Hispanic to African American and Vietnamese. They are 3-5 years old in my multi-age classroom. They all laugh, smile, and play together in harmony!

The families in the community are very appreciative of the opportunity of a high quality early education their children benefit from.

Many of them get assistance in some way with paying our tuition, which helps tremendously!

My Project

The couch, rug, and multicultural dolls with help my students create a comfortable learning environment while they are at school.

I would like a comfy couch, soft rug, and multicultural dolls to create a warm learning environment which promotes cultural awareness of my diverse preschool classroom!

It is very important for my students to have dolls that represent who they are when they look into a mirror. I want them to recognize how important their culture is to our classroom! The rug and couch will create a home away from home while they are at school!

The comfy learning environment will encourage children to grab their favorite book, or a baby doll to encourage caretaker skills!
