My Students

I work at a brand new school that believes that every child deserves a quality education. Our class demographics include refugee students, underserved students, as well many diverse learners. We learn to honor each others' differences as well as our own.

Kindergarten is such an exciting time as this is their first peek into their formal schooling years.

The goal is for all students leave kindergarten classroom with a deep love and joy of learning. We are a busy, hands on classroom that value not just skills, but critical thinking as well creativity. We learn through our play and explorations, and love to share about our diverse backgrounds.

My Project

"Ok, so I figured out! If I build a steeper ramp, I will be able to knock down the cylinders at the bottom." "I added this sign to my building so everyone knows this is a castle. See. I wrote c-a-s-l by myself!" "I am having trouble keeping this building up. What can I do?"

Unit Blocks are an essential material in kindergarten.

It might look like kids are just playing and having fun, but blocks support:

Spacial Reasoning (did you know that current research shows that children (ages 4-7) who have good spacial reasoning are more likely to fine success with math later on?)

Social Emotional learning (Did you know that many longitudinal studies have shown that children with high social and emotional IQs in kindergarten are more successful than children who did not have the chance to develop these competentices?)

Literacy skills, slowing external stimuli to help with focusing needs, STEM, and developing a growth mindsets.

Blocks are used every single day in our classroom, and have a 50 year guarantee so that means this project can reach over 3,000 children in its lifetime! Not only are blocks and engaging and fun, but they are a pivotal way we learn.
