My Students

In our school the community, faculty and staff, and administration firmly believe that we can "Empower Our Future One Child at a Time." Our students are encouraged to be life learners, to be kind to one another, and be leaders.

Our school corporation is located in central Indiana in a rural community where students come from a wide range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

Our faculty and staff are committed to helping develop each child in a supportive, caring, and nurturing environment.

My Project

This is my first year teaching in a Kindergarten classroom and I am loving it! My favorite part of each day is our read aloud time. It opens the door to wonderful conversations with my kindergarteners.

I am a big believer in holding a book in your hands, and taking the time to fully explore the illustrations on each page.

Our curriculum focuses on one to two books for each literacy unit. I am currently using our local library and YouTube to read or listen to the listed stories. By having each listed book, I will be able to put every story into the little hands of my kindergarteners.
