My Students

I teach a class of 22 amazing and inquisitive Transitional Kindergarten students in a Title 1 community, located in the inner city, in one of the largest cities in the country.

I feel honored to educate and motivate my highly energetic and curious class of 4-year-olds.

Most of my little learners have never experienced school before and they are so inquisitive about how their world operates and how to get along with their classmates. It is so rewarding to watch their self-confidence grow as they tackle and eventually master many new tasks each day.

To help my students overcome many of the challenges they face at home, I am excited to support my children with multiple learning experiences that address all skill levels in a respectful and compassionate way.

The more stimulating, hands-on manipulatives and centers I can rotate in my classroom, the more I can prepare my students for their eventual entrance into college and beyond!

My Project

My four-year-old students are eager to learn all about their new world (the classroom). One way I help them to adjust to the rules and routines of the classroom environment is by providing them with exciting tools such as scented markers to practice writing their names.

The children are motivated to practice and explore new concepts and skills when they earn scented stickers or have tools such as the mini erasers to use.

My students face many daily challenges at home and so I want to give them the tools they need for them to have an equitable and differentiated education.
