My Students

The children in my inner city Milwaukee K4 and K5 classrooms are some of the most amazing and resilient young people I've ever met! Although many of my students have been through all types of trauma, it doesn't suppress their desire and passion for learning new things. This hunger to learn is something that I try to foster in my classroom since Wisconsin is, unfortunately, No. 1 in the country for the widest graduation-rate gap between white and black students. I truly believe that my students are capable of changing our world for the better, and I just want to ensure that they have the supplies and exposure to experiences that will foster this.

My Project

The children that I work with on a daily basis come to school with varying levels and understanding of self regulation and sensory input due to the experiences they’ve lived through. With the use of supplies such as essential oils and scented putty I plan to teach students about self regulation and sensory input. Also, I plan to use picture books to talk about strong feelings in a safe way. By doing this I hope to teach them how to control big emotions in safe and healthy ways. This in turn will allow students to focus better and learn more easily.
