My Students

I teach at a low-income inner-city school in the heart of a busy downtown. My students come from many different types of homes and extremely diverse family dynamics. For most of my students, this is their first school experience.

My goal this school year is to give my students lots of opportunities to explore and create wonderful things.

Being a S.T.E.A.M. (Science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) certified school means all learning should be hands-on and extremely engaging. Which as a teacher allows me to be very creative in my teaching style. I'm excited to make learning fun and meaningful for my kindergarteners' first experience attending school.

My Project

Since the pandemic children are coming to us with fewer foundational skills. I want to do everything in my power to help them with early reading and literacy skills. I want to find fun ways to help them sound out words in their books and create their own words in their writing. This will help them build a solid foundation to become great readers. My school does Daily 5 which allows me to to have a word work center everyday. I want to keep my centers fresh and exciting so my students will stay engaged and ready to learn new skills.
