My Students

My students amaze me every single day. Each day these students make a decision to push themselves and do better than the day before.

Each day is a blessing in my classroom as I spend time with my students helping them to become the best learners that they can be.

As they learn and grow, they become more interested in everything around them and how the world works. Their passion and desire to learn inspires me each day to be a better teacher.

My Project

Music can light up the eyes of any Kindergartener. My students need more music in their lives. The Kids Play Hand Bells and Sheet Music book is a great introduction to music for any student. Ringing the bells teaches students rhythm, timing, and coordination, and it sounds AMAZING! Any student can feel the amazing bubbly feeling of playing an instrument and sharing music with other people when given the chance. I want my students to have this opportunity many times a year! Our school does not have a music class so I feel that this is very important to the quality of learning in my classroom for my students. Can you hear the bells in the Kinder-Garden?
