My Students

I'm the proud teacher of a wonderful group of 10 students who all have special needs. My preschool program is located within a public Title I school. My students come from a variety of socioeconomic statuses. Regardless of life's hardships, they do not allow this to hold them back to ensure their child is learning and giving their best at school each day.

My amazing group of exceptional preschool students are loving and enjoy hands-on and engaging activities.

They are a vibrant and excited group of 3, 4 and 5 year olds who arrive at school ready for a day of learning. Many of my students receive a variety of services from speech, occupational therapy, and behavior therapy. In our classroom, it's my goal to provide an enriching learning environment that will help all of my students meet their developmental milestones so they will have a successful school year.

I am excited to embark on my journey with DonorsChoose.org to help fill the gaps so I can meet my students' developmental milestones. To my future donors, thanks so much for supporting my students!

My Project

Imagine growing up and not having the opportunity to ride a tricycle? Many of my students don't have much but what they do have they cherish. My students are special needs and many have developmental milestones that they are working closely with an occupational therapist to meet.

In my classroom it's important to create learning experiences that will help support the needs of all of my students.

This trike will help my students with hand eye coordination, stengthening their core muscles, balance and spatial awareness. Most importantly this will help with strengthening their gross motor skills. In order for my students to move towards fine motor skills such as writing this is a milestone they must meet first.

Unfortunately, the preschool program is not able to provide tricycles for my students to meet this important milestone in their development. Lastly, this trike will help my students build endurance and perseverance in a fun and engaging way.

The road to a successful year in preschool begins with this trike. To my future donors thanks for helping my students paddle, steer and ride into a successful year of learning!
