Mrs. Hewitt from Panama City FL is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Are Pre-K Strong

Help me give my students furniture, such as cubbies, cabinets, and toys, such as a play kitchen and sand table, that were lost due to Hurricane Michael.

My Students

I have a classroom of twenty 4-5 year old students that are curious about the world around them and are eager to learn. Everyday my students come into our classroom with smiles on their faces and they inspire me to come up with new and creative ways to feed their minds.

Our classroom is a place that supports children actively engaging with their world to establish healthy relationships with others, solve interesting problems and figure out who they are and how they fit in their family and community.

My Project

On October 10th, Hurricane Michael devastated our community and displaced many families. My classroom unfortunately was one of the many losses in our community.

My classroom lost its roof during Hurricane Michael.

The rain and subsequent mold destroyed most of the items, including furniture and learning materials.

The way the physical environment is designed and configured influences how children feel, act, and behave. The physical environment allows growth and development through activities and materials in defined play areas. Room arrangement for play activity plays an important role in students’ social and language interactions. Such items like Home living, manipulatives, water and sand tables would help influence their development.

I would love to be able to replace the items in my classroom to get our children back to a little normalcy. These items that were lost are an integral part of our learning environment. Our families are still struggling to rebuild our community. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to be able to go forward toward some normalcy.
