My Students

I teach PreK to a wonderful and creative group of boys and girls at a Title I school. They are excited to learn and come to school each day. It is important to ensure that children enjoy learning. This is what PreK should be about.

They will take their joy of learning into the next grade and beyond.

Therefore, they need all the necessary materials that will make them successful, independent and confident learners. With your help, this can continue.

My Project

Remote learning is not the most ideal thing but kids still need to learn. In order for that to happen, I need enough ink to last throughout the school year. There are lengthy assessments, benchmarks, and other work that uses ink to print. These assessments tell where they are in reading, writing and math.

Without these packets, it is impossible to assess where they are at and what I need to continue working on.

Please help me receive enough ink to last throughout the school year for the necessary packets, work and assessments that need to be completed.
