My Students

I am a first-year kindergarten teacher! The student make-up is 81% Hispanic with many students being ELLs, and nearly all students come from low-income households.

We come together each day to be a community of learners, helping each other to grow and do our very best.

They love hands-on, active, and engaging projects and challenges that will allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They begin their love for learning in my classroom and continue throughout their educational career!

My Project

My students absolutely love our read aloud time in the mornings! I have shown them classics that I have grown up loving as well as new additions I have found through friends' and teachers'suggestions. I would love to have these books to share with my students.

It is so important to me that students find a love for reading and literature and have a positive experience their very first year of school!

I know that with your help I can make this project possible and I cannot even imagine their faces when they see these books for the first time!
