My Students

Can you remember back to the time when you were excited to learn something new and exciting each and every day at school? My preschool Head Start classroom, consisting of 3 to 5 year old learners, is always busy with new and engaging activities!

Early learning sets the foundation for future academic success.

I strive to have new and exciting activities for the students to engage in each day. At this stage, they are learning to be more independent and self-managed.

My Project

Recent research has shown that children who are socially competent are more likely to be successful later in life. The skills associated with social-emotional learning are both ‘fundamental for life effectiveness’ and ‘a framework for school improvement.’ Now more than ever we need to help prepare children to learn non-violent problem solving and self-regulation skills. Many of the children who enter our classroom come with a hefty amount of trauma in their short lives. We hope to provide a safe space that is tailored to meet them where they are emotionally and help them take the steps to learn to self-regulate. This project is aimed at supporting children in gaining these valuable social-emotional skills, while setting their environment up for success.
