My Students

My Pre-K students are from all backgrounds. They attend our Title I PreK, Monday-Friday for a half day. We are in a diverse neighborhood with students of many different cultures that attend Pre-K. Our school services PreK-5th grades. We have over 250 students in our school. Our Pre-K services the neediest students in our community.

Despite the many challenges my students may face, they are eager to learn.

They love school and can't wait to see what we are learning and doing each day.

My Project

The Osmo Little Genius kits will help my students create, explore, and engage in learning. The books will help us build strong relationships and connections in our classroom.

These materials encourage us to embrace our unique qualities while showing kindness and empathy to those around us.

They celebrate our family connections and will help me better meet the needs of students who have experienced trauma.

I know these resources will make a huge impact on our PreK classroom. They will allow for discussions about deep and important topics and build our connections and family feel in our classroom. My students will benefit greatly from these materials.
