My Students

My students are a joyful group of kids. They are so full of life and tons of energy. They LOVE to learn and are so curious! They ask tons of questions and are unapologetic about it! I love how much they love to learn and wish to make it as fun for then as possible.

Each day these children fill my cup with so much happiness, and I would love to be able to present them with a great first year EVER at school.

My Project

Our school opted out of purchasing rugs for kindergarten this year. We had rugs last year, but they were discarded due to their condition. We have new rubber seat spots, which are great for mobility and simplicity but are also a distraction for the children.

ALOT of time and learning opportunities are spent on the rug in kindergarten.

We have circle time, story time, as well as lesson openers on our rug. It would be great to make this space as comfortable and warm as possible this school year and years to come. Every child should have a warm start to their scholastic careers 😊
