My Students

I teach in a co-teach setting for pre-k students. We have the great opportunity to teach students from many diverse backgrounds such as English Language Learners (ELLs), Special Education Students (SPED), and first-time learners.

My students all have different needs and different ways that they learn to accomplish their social, emotional, and academic goals.

My students are very amazing pre-k students who are experiencing school through new eyes. They're inquisitive, not afraid to make mistakes, and make everything an adventure.

My Project

Tunnels and Arches Set is suitable for kids who think outside the box and helps to improve architectural skills. It has curved blocks that are perfect for constructing tunnels, bridges or the loch ness monster. 10-Birch block set comes with four different widths and perfect for use in the classroom.

Our block center is one of our students' favorite play center and they always develop so much creativity there.

Guidecraft Better Builders Emotions Set features the magnetic fun of the original ball and rod construction toy, but assembled as 6 dramatic play characters. The faces express 6 distinct emotions to which children can relate: happy, sad, angry, surprised, confused, and scared. Interchange the friction-fit hairstyles, 3 male and 3 female, to create new personalities and allow for personal connection to the characters. Includes enough pieces to build 6 people.

Guidecraft Better Builders Community People Set features the magnetic fun of the original ball and rod with colorful faces, uniforms, and personalities! Use the 21-piece set to build four characters. Community People include a police officer, fire fighter, construction worker, and mail carrier. Each set includes a red, yellow, blue, and green ball and rod body and various multi-color pieces to create the different community characters.
