My Students

"Learning is more effective when it is an active rather than passive process," Kurt Lewin.

We have a class full of learners who seek movement and hands-on activities!

My students come to me with very basic, academic skills and many are below proficiency levels. Our job is to work together as a team and get ready for first grade. I tell them, "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose," Dr. Seuss.

My great bunch of kids are eager learners who want to see themselves succeed. Many know that their skills are below level, but their efforts are top notch. Our school is a beautiful and welcoming building. It is a high poverty school and very diverse racially. About one-fourth of our students have some type of special need, but all are fully included in the regular education program. Our school attracts students and families from across the city. It is a great place to learn!

My Project

A friend of mine who also teaches kindergarten has a motto in her classroom that "dirty hands are happy hands," meaning that if their hands are not getting "dirty" that they are not learning. So much of kindergarten learning involves using our little hands.

It is amazing where young hands venture throughout the day, sometimes to forbidden territories!

Germs are easily spread from one child to another. So having hand sanitizer, or "hanitizer," as we call it in our classroom readily available will help fight the spread of those icky germs. Having the wipes and all-purpose cleaner will allow my to wipe down any surfaces that those hands have touched throughout the day.

Another friend has introduced me to essential oils and has told me about different oils that promote healthy respiration, relaxation, germ-fighting, and cheer. A fresh and clean atmosphere will also help our little minds become focused and ready to learn.
