My kindergarten students live in a low income urban city. They attend a primary center that consists of only 6 kindergarten classroom. 90% of them are English Language Learners and only 40% of them demonstrate proficiency in their home languages. 100% qualify for free/reduced priced lunches. At the outset of the school year, many of my students possess inadequate fine motor, social, behavioral, and academic skills. Many of them have never participated in an organized group or classroom setting. They are separated from their parents and families for the first time. Every year, these students work diligently to become independent, think critically, meet and exceed academic standards, and to have a blast in class. My students become passionate learners, asking and answering questions and challenging one another. They also learn to be compassionate- caring for their peers, families, and campus. They love being at school.
