My Students

This is my 14th year teaching and I love it even more each year! I absolutely adore teaching my five and six year old kindergarten babes. My students attend a school that services many low income students, where the needs are both far and wide. This year, I have 21 students in my classroom of varying abilities. My classroom includes ELL students that are learning the English language for the very first time. However, no matter the challenges, I look forward to providing them all with a safe, nurturing, and exciting classroom environment where they feel like rock stars.

Thank you for considering a donation to help my class!

My Project

My students are in need of leveled books to help them feel more successful during independent reading time. My students read by themselves every single day. These books would be a great addition to our classroom library as students would be able to read the words themselves. They get to pick their own books, find a comfy spot, and develop their love of reading. With these easy readers, students will build their confidence as readers as they learn that they can indeed read! I’m very excited to bring some more reading choices to my classroom. Thank you for considering my project.
