My Students

I teach kindergarten to 24 of the sweetest, most loving, caring, and smartest 5-year-old kids. They love coming to school to learn and to be part of something special. I strive each day to make each day the best ever.

My favorite thing about teaching kindergarten is that every day is a new day, and they are so full of wonder!

I've taught at the same school for the past 26 years, and it is the same school I attended as a child.

Every year, I am given the best class, and this year is no exception! I call them my rock stars, and I hope that they know how much I love having them in my class!

My Project

I am requesting headphones for my students to use in class. We have been so lucky to become a one on one classroom with tablets, but it is very hard to hear when all the students are working. These headphones will help the students by allowing them to work on their devices while others are working on other projects. They will be able to focus, listen and learn better with the headphones.

Kindergarten isn't what it use to be!

The curriculum has changed so much in the last 10 years and now we have a technology component added. My students use technology on a daily basis and need headphones in order to concentrate and stay on task. The headphones will be used by the students daily and numerous times throughout the day. The headphones will also help them gain confidence, focus and develop appropriate skills they need to be ready for school.
