My Students

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful group of kindergartners. They are loving, kind, and compassionate. They are such hard workers and just absolutely love learning!

My students LOVE learning through hands-on activities and are so excited to try new things; we are able to do so much because they are so passionate about their learning.

It melts my heart to see such a love for school at such a young age! They get so excited over the simplest activities. It is so fun to be able to expose them to how much fun school can be!

My Project

Fostering an early love for books is so important. My students need new picture books in the classroom to enjoy and to develop a love for reading.

Who doesn't love a good picture book?

Kindergartners love to look through books and I want to supply them with new books this year. I have so many books that have torn pages and I would love to replace them with even better books.

Having 20 students in a class you need a lot of books to keep them entertained. I want to build my library and replace many old books to bring a little more joy to my classroom.
