My Students

I teach in a high poverty school where all of my students qualify for free lunches. My experience as a pre-K classroom teacher has allowed me to enjoy working with this age group because their minds are similar to sponges, absorbing vast knowledge and eager to learn. My students love looking at books and role-playing. My students appreciate everything that is given to them. They are always eager to learn and play together. It is important for my students to have a successful education.

My Project

Imaginative play is essential for a child's early years. This year, my students took a special interest in our classroom's dramatic play center.

We are in need of a new dramatic play center.

The kitchen we have in our dramatic play center now is old and is coming apart. It is important to have a sturdy dramatic play center for the safety of our students. Furthermore, students learn essential skills that are important in later years. A new dramatic play center will allow students to interact with each other, using language skills and both fine and gross motor skills. An important skill I include in my teaching is for them to learn to work together. This skill will prove to be vital in their future when they work together with their peers at school or work. I would like for my students to play in a dramatic play center that has a sturdy kitchen set to enhance role-playing. The kitchen set will not only benefit my current students but will also help future students for many years to come. Just imagine how excited the students will be with the help of your donations.
