My Students

My students are amazing little people! They care about each other, help each other, take care of each other, and genuinely want to see everyone be happy.

The Kindergarten students I work with each year learn so much and it is truly incredible to see their growth and progress from August until June.

My class of 25 Kindergarten students inspires me each year to do better. Each year we welcome approximately 100 new little faces to our school.

Our school is also the primary school in the District which services English Language Learners.

My Project

Our school is located in Western Pennsylvania, which means a LOT of indoor recess. I would like to give our Kindergarten students an option to play in an inside recess room.

My goal is that the Kindergarten classes in our school can take turns rotating and getting a chance to play in the inside recess room.

This would allow our students more options when we have inside recess.

“When we treat children’s play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping them feel the joy that’s to be found in the creative spirit. It’s the things we play with and the people who help us play that make a great difference in our lives.” ― Fred Rogers
