My Students

Our early childhood school is now in its tenth year serving the community. In our Pre-K class, that means over 180 students will have come and gone from this Pre-K classroom. Along with that, many other students have called our room home for enrichment classes, after-school programs, and summer camp.

Families send their precious children to our class every day, for us to help them take those first steps towards accomplishing great feats.

Children make this room their home for however long they stay and miss it dearly when they move on. It's something we take pride in, and we hope to continue doing what we love to do and that nurtures their love of learning.

I've been teaching at my first and current school for six years. No matter who enters through that door, they are part of our school family. I hope to provide them with the absolute best education we can offer.

My Project

Children are curious about everything they can explore using their senses. If you watch a newborn baby, they are learning and exploring using their five sense. The simple input we take for granted is the first teacher that an infant learns from as it begins to explore the world. We deny our children from learning about their curiosity and what intrigues them because someone believes that binding them to a desk in a classroom in order to pass a test is considered learning and is what best prepares them for the future.

Weather shouldn't put a stoppage to learning or being active.

When it rains or if it's cold, our children are disappointed because they are unable to go outside. They would love to have the chance to go out on a cold or snowy day to explore and play. Their enthusiasm has inspired this project so every day, whether the weather is sunny or rainy, they will have the opportunity to get out there and stay active.

The hats, gloves, and scarves will allow our kids to go out every day, regardless of weather. When the weather gets cold, it becomes a reason for our kids to stay in. The cold should not prevent our kids from staying active. Your support would mean the world to our 18 curious explorers and help keep them warm. With the ability to go out and play in the cold and snow, it'll add new inquiries and studies to take back into the classroom.

Along with the winter gear, I am also requesting spare changes of clothes for those moments where our kids get too wrapped up in play and forget to use the bathroom. Accidents happen and although we ask parents to send in a spare set of clothes, some parents forget.
