My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher. I teach in a low-income neighborhood. I teach at a school where the staff and students are excited about going to school every day. We have a safe and clean school environment. My school services children in grades Prek-8th grade. We have great students who work very hard and obey the school rules. My students absolutely love school and are excited about learning all they can. It is my goal to provide my students with the best educational experience by providing them with great creative lessons while using great materials.

My Project

The supplies will help my students create fun and exciting projects that relate to the lessons taught in class. Students will become more confident when completing assignments because they will have the supplies that will help them create awesome work.

My students will be able to learn and create great work with materials they can depend on.

I want my students to only focus on learning and growing and not worry if they will have a crayon or a pencil to complete their work.

My students will feel proud and will enjoy using the supplies given to them. They will create great work and will take care of the materials that they are given.
