My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher of 15 students within the age ranges of 4, 5 and 6. They are special little people who often advocate the love for coming to school. They are little people who often carry alongside them big boy and girl problems. 100% of them are participants in the free breakfast and lunch program and often have to be responsible for themselves and siblings.

We live in a small Georgia town without much opportunity, but try to provide large yet special moments through fun times and optimal learning environments that are safe and complete.

Teachers' jobs are to stretch each child's abilities even when the student believes their talents are minimal. There are no minimalist ideas in kindergarten. Everyone is taught that they are super! AND...my kids are always super and I want to allow them the chances to know and understand their potentials!

My Project

We are in need of blocks, bots, sliders and magnets so that we may tap into our reading happiness. Isn't kindergarten where the foundations of reading occur? We can play while working at the same time. Bots that are letters and robots, sliders that help us hear each individual sound and see every letter and big magnets that we can move around to see the letter, make the sound and move them on to make words would be awesome in our classroom! We are ready to board the reading choo choo train in Georgia.

We were tremendously impacted by Hurricane Michael on October 10th.

He blew through our town quickly, but dangerously at the wind speeds of a category 3 and left a complete path of destruction. We aren't feeling sorry, but are perservering in our little town and in our classroom.

1/2 the school year has passed and now it is time to press on with reading words. Reading is the foundation to a good life. Help us receive these blocks, bots, sliders and magnets to have lots of fun and work on that life empowering skill of reading.
