My Students

My students are empathetic, creative and inquisitive! They absolutely love to participate in hands-on, imaginative and engaging projects that challenge them to think outside the box! They come to school each day with smiles on their faces, ready to try new things and take on the day. They are truly wonderful!

The students in my classroom live in San Francisco and come from many different backgrounds and experiences.

We join together each day as one Kindergarten community where their hopes, dreams and successes build a foundation for their future education. Their successes and triumphs are celebrated, their arguments and sadness are worked through and their friendships and sense of self mature.

While their love of learning grows stronger throughout the year, it is important to learn how each student thrives and what they each need to be successful. I want to provide a learning environment that helps each of my student's reach their fullest potential!

My Project

"My table broke again", is a comment I hear all too often from my Kindergarten students. Sometimes the screws fall out, the desks rock on uneven legs or the wood starts to splinter.

These surfaces no longer provide the collaborative work and play spaces that our class has come to need!

The new round tables would provide space for 6 students to comfortably work on the same surface, which means no more wobbly or uneven desks shoved together to make a group. These round tables allow 6 students to comfortably work independently while providing space for collaborative conversation and group work when necessary.

I believe these tables will offer our students the much needed space and support they need to cooperate and be imaginative!
