My Students

My kindergartners are creating life-long friendships. They are learning to collaborate, build social skills, problem-solve, and develop creativity and discovering who they are as individuals. They are eager to explore the world around them through purposeful play.

The students in my classroom come from a rural community with diverse backgrounds, cultures, and socioeconomic statuses.

Many students are learning English for the first time and rely on school programs for food and clothing.

While students may enter school with limited experiences, when these young learners step into the classroom, I believe they each have unlimited potential and deserve, rich, hands-on learning experiences to help shape their future!

My Project

This project will foster students' love of books and use their imaginations.

A comfy, cozy spot on the sofa will invite students to spend time reading their favorite books!

My kindergarteners will love getting lost in stories as they put their feet up and enjoy a space just their size.

This space will also double as a living room setting for our dramatic play area, encouraging students to develop language and social skills. This sofa is a perfect addition to a child-centered learning environment that invites students into the space to share, learn, discover and imagine as they grow together!
