My Students

My kindergarten class typically works for part of the day at hands-on learning centers that integrate all subject areas. These activities and centers tap into my students' natural curiosity and give ample opportunities for them to be active participants in their own learning.

Each day is a new opportunity to make an impact on their lives - to inspire and drive their desire to learn.

In our district, we know many of our students overcome significant obstacles to pursue their education.

Despite those obstacles, our students arrive in the classroom ready for discovery. These students are inspiring learners.

My Project

A new rug for our classroom would enhance the learning of all of my students. They often have difficulty sitting at a desk for a long time. The rug allows them to sit close to their peers while not being confined by their chairs. My students need to be close to their teachers for story time, oral language development, board work, and group activities. They would greatly benefit from a rug that would allow them to maximize their activities in a group setting while developing peer relationships that will help with their social development.

Every child deserves an inviting, friendly, safe classroom that inspires you to do well each day.

A new rug will definitely be remembered by my students as they read books, play games, and enjoy their day!
