My Students

My students are curious and ready to learn. We are a bilingual school teaching our students English and Spanish. Our program is located in Philadelphia. We are part of the low income Head Start program that services students from ages 3 to 4. Our goal is to have students ready for kindergarten.

Our school provides a rigorous curriculum for the students along with play-based learning.

We provide a safe and nurturing environment. We are proud that our school has a Keystone Stars 4 rating.

My Project

Tooth decay and cavities are on the rise in preschool children. We need to stop this epidemic. Our preschool program not only focuses on academics but the overall healthy and wellness of our students. Help me teach healthy tooth brushing skills and independence with the tooth brush holding rack. Students will be responsible for brushing their teeth everyday and returning their own toothbrush to its correct spot with their name. These habits are so important to instill while children are young. Making children independent is our goal. Help our classroom put a stop to tooth decay and have a healthy smile.
