My Students

I have a great group of 23 wiggly 4 year olds. My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. It is my job to bring all of these different backgrounds and experiences together to provide the best learning experience possible for the class.

Students are picked for my class because they need extra support in order to be ready for 5K next year.

In spite of the challenges they face, they constantly rise to the occasion and frequently blow me away with their ability to learn.

My Project

I want my students' first school experience to be the best it can be to foster a life long love of learning. Sometimes for low-income students this can be difficult if they have not been in a structured setting before.

We need a new classroom rug that is big enough for all 23 students to sit comfortably.

Our large group rug is a meeting place where we can come together to read, sing, share stories and ideas that are important to them (the students). These experiences up us to form a loving caring group that fosters the willingness to take chances.
