My Students

My students are resilient, self-motivated, excited and eager learners! I love teaching kindergarten. It provides the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

My kindergarten students would love to use Square Panda to help improve their literacy skills.

I love that they would be learning and practicing valuable skills that will last a lifetime.

I am so proud to be the teacher in a school with a very large percentage of English language learners and students who qualify for free/reduced lunch. These students will rise up and achieve any goals they set!

My Project

My students would love to have these supplies in our classroom! I have a large percentage of ESL learners and students who receive free or reduced lunch based on their household income. The many different skin colors on the crayons and construction paper would be perfect to make sure every skin tone in our classroom is represented.

The dough and dough mats would give my students a chance to experience hands-on learning while working on both alphabet and number recognition.

They love to use play dough, but the mats would show students what the intended learning objective is.

My classroom is a home away from home for my students. These materials will keep students engaged and excited about our activities.
