My Students

Kindergarten is the time to create, investigate, and make! My students are wildly imaginative, brilliantly creative, and full of giggles! They come from one of the toughest neighborhoods in the city of Chicago but it certainly doesn't stop them from being excited about school every day! It's one of the happiest years in early childhood because they are at the age of exploring and are just stepping into the big world of education. They see the world through these fabulously fun glasses of endless possibilities that spreads into our hearts as teachers and adults. It's a positive and constant reminder of how fun it was to be five!

My students are a terrific bunch of kids full of excitement and who have an epic hunger for learning!

They are always asking new questions and are curious about anything new they discover. My students are this incredible bunch of diverse learners. We have students of all abilities and I am always so proud and impressed by the level of love and compassion my students share for one another. We are a true community of little learners who are always eager to try something new and help each other learn and grow!

My Project

My students are full of love and energy but often need a snack or extra food to start their day. My students come from a very challenging neighborhood in the middle of a food dessert. Healthy food and complete meals are not often available for my students and their families.

It is all too common for students to come to school with rumbling tummies who are in need of some extra substance.

In the past I have done my best to provide as many snacks as possible but supplies usually run low mid year. I would love to be able to have snacks available to my students throughout the entire year. No child should ever go with out food and I want to be sure that their tummies are full with food and their minds are full of learning.
