My Students

I teach Pre-K to a multi-age class consisting of 3, 4 and 5 year old learners. We are part a low socioeconomic public school district and are partnered through a grant with our county's PreK Counts Program which creates a strong sense of community.

My students are eager to learn in a fun, nurturing, and most of all SAFE environment!

My students absolutely love singing, dancing, creating, exploring and pretending! I am so excited to learn and grow with them!

My Project

There is never a moment in my PreK classroom where my students aren't learning and discovering. A significant learning time in my class is circle time. Right now my carpet is one color divided by tape which is uninviting and serves little purpose other than somewhere to sit.

With this bright, colorful carpet with shapes and letters you will help provide meaningful educational experiences where my students can learn through movement!

This, along with the light box and literacy accessories, will allow a variety of ways to identify colors, shapes, letters, and numbers. My students will absolutely love exploring and discovering with light!
