My Students

As a second year teacher I am committed to fostering a love of learning and strong sense of community among my students. I believe that the key to creating a welcoming, inclusive learning environment where students can thrive begins with caring for each other and encouraging everyone to do their best. I want to focus on instilling a love of learning and caring for one another in my first year teaching Kindergarten. I want to instill an inner drive for students to self monitor and be accountable for their learning.

Your support in providing the needs of the students in my classroom will help them achieve social, emotional, and academic success.

My Project

The heavy duty paper trays will make a huge difference to the students in my class by helping them organize their daily work in the classroom. I want to teach them how to be responsible and accountable for their own learning and part of that comes ownership. Each Student will be responsible for keeping their individual colored paper tray organized so they can store their daily writing journal, math pages, art and more.

Students will increase their comprehension skills by engaging in meaningful, collaborative work with partners to sequence 3 and 4 part stories.

Overall, these materials will enhance the students learning experience and help them become responsible and independent individuals.
