My Students

My students come from a very low socioeconomic neighborhood. Many of them do not even speak English when they enter kindergarten. Yet, they are eager to learn and grow so much in just one year. That's why I believe I have the best job in the world. I get to watch these students transform from shy, cautious, and sometimes scared kids into confident, risk takers, that love to learn. These kids are truly excited about reading and solving problems. I will continue to do my best to provide them with as many opportunities and experiences in order to expand their minds.

My Project

My students need a way to organize their papers. Our cubbies that we have used the last two years are falling apart. We need a heavy duty cubbies that can hold all of our writing center materials. We love to create letters, shopping lists, stories and amazing pictures while we are in the writing center. If we have a way to organize our papers we can find exactly what we want or need to complete our projects.

We are creative, critical thinkers that are learning to express ourselves in written form.

This is an exciting time for young minds! Thank you!
