My Students

My kindergarten classroom is always filled with excited learners. We are a family. One of the greatest joys of teaching kindergarten is seeing the tremendous growth the students accomplish in such a short time. At the beginning of the year, most of the students cannot read and some have never even seen a pencil. By the end of the school year, the students are reading and writing fluently! It's an amazing accomplishment and they love the journey. They are excited to come to school and love learning new things.

We typically have 24-28 kindergarten students every year.

My students come from different cultures and backgrounds. They have different interests and dreams. My goal is to get them curious and excited about learning and immerse them in the learning environment. We have to practice building stamina to read, converse, and even play! We practice communicating and working together. I’m focusing my project on preparing the whole child and encouraging them to explore, create, and learn while loving every second of it!

My Project

My classroom has always been a place filled with love. We are a family. I’ve been teaching for 15 years and 14 of them have been in the Kindergarten classroom. I’ve noticed in recent years that more and more students are struggling with communication and creative play. I want to enhance my classroom environment to address the evolving needs of my students. Young children need to have the opportunities to play, create, and communicate. The materials I’ve selected will help my students tremendously with these vital foundational skills. I want them to have diverse activities and opportunities to explore and grow as young learners.
