My Students

My students are creative, curious, and full of questions! As children between the ages of 3 and 5, they take in information quickly and are eager to learn. They are basically like little sponges!

Preschool is an important time for them to build a foundation for their future education and learn many life skills to help them become independent.

The students in my developmental preschool classroom have a variety of special needs, including, but not limited to, developmental delays, speech and language impairments, Down Syndrome, and traumatic brain injuries. They learn the same things as a general education preschool classroom would but might need a little extra help or accommodation along the way. They are energetic, excited, and ready to learn!

Our school is located on the near east side of downtown Indianapolis. We are a diverse group with many different abilities. I am thankful to be a part of this thriving community!

My Project

These materials will be used by all students and teachers in the classroom. With interactive circle time materials like these, students will learn basic skills, like counting, letter identification, rhyming, weather, the date, colors, and shapes. The materials are also designed to help build kindergarten readiness, literacy skills, and hands-on exploration. Because circle time occurs each school day, students will be exposed to these skills repetitively throughout the school year. Many of my students have difficulty staying engaged during circle time, and I believe that the letters pocket chart, calendar kit, and circle time learning center kit will help my students stay engaged, interact, and have fun when attending circle!
