My Students

Kindergarten is a very unique and special grade level. My class is composed of 22 eager and brilliant developing minds who work hard transitioning into "big kid school". They come in with big hearts and excitable attitudes, ready to learn. In my classroom, I strive to promote support for one another and to embrace our differences while always being respectful. Kindergarten is my passion, and this school community is my home, even if it all through distance learning this year.

I want my students to see themselves in the books they read.

Our classroom is very diverse, and we have many home languages including Chinese, Burmese, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, and Arabic-- the list goes on!

While it is a goal to have my students to challenge themselves academically, I also strive to teach empathy and to promote inclusiveness of all kinder friends while learning, socializing, and playing with each other. I also want to equip and expose my students to different tools that will enhance their skills and motivate them to explore their education in different kinds of ways. It is important for me to provide a safe, welcoming, and engaging environment and

My Project

I want to add books into our library and have lessons that show inclusivity and acceptance. I want students to be able to see themselves in the books we read and the lessons we learn. We learn about respect and understanding; I think these books will be incredible additions to highlight the importance of women trailblazers.

Representation matters.

I am hoping include more books that highlight how women are changing the world and are making a difference, both past and present. I want to add books that show women of different cultures, races, and backgrounds. I want to make sure that all my students are able to see themselves in these women or see their their mothers, sisters and friends represented.
