My Students

I teach full-day kindergarten in a dual immersion program. Some of my students come from English only speaking families and are participating in the program to learn Spanish as a second language. The other part of my class consists of English learners.

My students come to school excited to learn and eager to help each other.

I want my students' first year in school to be successful, memorable, and fun! I try to keep things exciting for them and offer them different ways of learning and mastering the kindergarten standards.

My Project

I have been teaching for over 10 years. However, this is only my 2nd year teaching kindergarten, and I absolutely love it! Kindergarten requires so many additional materials and resources in order to help make content accessible to our little ones. I have spent so much of my own money trying to do it all, and I've had to pick and prioritize where to spend the money.

I would really like to create a reading nook for my class to help make it a much more welcoming and exciting place for students to spend their day.

The couch and chairs will help create a comfortable reading space perfect for little kindergarteners. I want them to leave each day wanting to come back the next day. I'm hoping the nook will get them eager and excited about learning to READ! Thank you so much, every little bit counts.
