My Students

Those little Kiddo's come through the door with minds wide open! I love kindergarten students, they are the best! It is a great deal of work to teach five year old's, but the rewards are awesome. I love watching their faces as they learn something new!

It's my job to start their love for learning and build a foundation for their future.

Our sweetie's live in a area where everyone receives free lunch because it is so impoverished. They need all the help they can get to to overcome the obstacles in order to be successful and productive citizens.

My Project

We currently have about 90 kindergarten students on our small playground for recess, all at the same time. There are only four swings and one slide! We need playground equipment to keep them active.

This equipment will help children to be able to actually play instead of waiting in line during recess time.

Our school just does not have playground balls for them to play with, so they just stand around waiting or just run around to get energy out.

They want to play basketball, soccer, football, etc., but there is nothing to play with. Please help keep our kids active and learning even during playtime.
