My Students

My first grade students love to learn! Every morning they walk into our classroom with a big smile. They love to read, to be read to, play math games, work on coding, and write stories. They are curious and inquisitive children, and they challenge me every day to grow with them and be the best I can be.

We work hard to create a classroom community where students can take a risk to explore, wonder, and discover the world around them.

We ask questions, share our ideas, expand our learning environment using technology, and publish our work to share with the world. They work and collaborate with one another to learn.

Our school also focuses on character building. Children's kindness and compassion are recognized and celebrated. We are proud to be a part of an amazing school. We are family. We learn, play, laugh and grow together!

My Project

Bal-A-Vis-X is a series of Balance/Auditory/Vision eXercises, of varied complexity, all of which are deeply rooted in rhythm. The research shows that Bal-A-Vis-X exercises help improve children's focus, communication and collaboration skills, self-confidence, self-regulation, and academic achievement.

As a classroom teacher, I would like to provide a learning environment that optimizes children's ability.

From my experiences, I know that some students need more support than just academic interventions. Many struggle with sustaining focus during instructions. Some do not have hand-eye coordination. Others need to develop better fine and gross motor skills.

Today students are expected to stay focused throughout the day as we go through a series of tasks and instructions. We break often to do brain break exercises. Bal-A-Vis-X will be another tool that I can provide to support every student's unique needs.
