My Students

I teach kindergarten to 26 of the sweetest, most loving, caring, and smartest 5-year-old kids. They love coming to school to learn and to be part of something special. I strive each day to make each day the best ever.

My favorite thing about teaching kindergarten is that every day is a new day, and they are so full of wonder!

I've taught at the same school for the past years, and it is the same school I attended as a child. Every year I am given the best class and this year is no exception! I call them my Rockstars, and I hope that they know how much I love having them in my class!

My Project

Our class recently was gifted with iPads and we are now a one to one device kindergarten classroom This is great news, but we need somewhere where we can send our projects, and work with them in a group setting. This iPad will be be used for the classroom as a whole so that more students can see it in a small group setting. The students will also be able to send their projects to this iPad through airdrop so a teacher can assist them with editing or finalizing and then we can view it through Apple TV.

The kindergarten classroom of today is a far different place then it was just 5 years ago.

The students come ready to learn, and are not afraid to try, which is what I love. They are so full of curiosity and inquisitive. At this age the students learn by doing. The iPad, Apple Pencil and case with keyboard will only help enhance their skills of being ready for the 21st century. We are also requesting an Apple Pencil so that we can draw and write using our authentic print. The possibilities of what we can create are endless. Students can make their projects come alive with the Apple Pencil. Students would be able to share their drawings and writings once a week instead of strictly the traditional way they can project them and hopefully animate them. The case and keyboard will help to protect our iPad for years to come as well as help with our keyboarding skills. My goal is to have my students ready for the careers that haven't even been created yet because to be college and career ready we must start in kindergarten.
