My Students

My students are kind, motivated and inspired to create. They come from a variety of backgrounds and many are second language learners. When they come to school, they are happy to get started to work and see their friends They are hard working and enjoy collaborating and working on projects together. They support and encourage each other every day, and are mindful of the feelings of others.

Most of these kids have big dreams to become teachers, doctors, and scientists when they grow up.

They are enthusiastic about their learning and love to listen to stories, read books, play games, and move their bodies.
