My Students

I teach preschool for a public school in Michigan. This is my second year teaching in this school district. Our preschool has a Highscope curriculum and we are a GSRP program which means we are state-funded. I do not get a classroom stipend to spend on items for the classroom each year. These children qualify for the GSRP preschool because they have factors that deem them to be at risk for success. These children have very stressful lives at home and need their classroom to be a safe, warm and friendly place to come learn and play.

My Project

Our school is very low on funds this year and needs paper for students to use during small group time. During small group time is when students refine their literacy and math skills. I have been having to go out and buy paper myself for the students to use because my school cannot afford to provide any paper. My student are just starting to write their name and numbers and I have very little paper left for them to practice writing on. Please donate to this project you will be helping many student to continue to learn the joys of writing.
