My Students

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my classroom! I teach Kindergarten in a high poverty area (100% free breakfast and 75% free lunch) and most of my students have never even been to preschool. With budget cuts, we don't have the money to buy the resources that young children need to make learning fun. I want to give my students the resources they need to become successful, independent learners.

My students are so excited about school, and I want to give them every resource possible to foster their love of learning.

Though they may face challenges at home, they come in every day smiling and ready to learn. Please help us reach our goal! Thank you for your time and support!

My Project

Writer's Workshop is so important in a kindergarten classroom! It gives my students the chance to write about the world around them, share life experiences, and develop a love of writing. So many students can't even write their names at the beginning of the year, and by the end of the year, they are writing short stories. If you could only see the joy on their faces when they finally learn how to write a sentence all by themselves! These journals, markers, and whiteboards would mean so much to my students and help them become successful, independent writers!

Please help me with this project!

Due to budget cuts, our school has no money for classroom resources, and my students' parents often have difficulty providing even basic school supplies. I really want my students to have every resource available to help them be successful and build a solid foundation for first grade!
