My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher in a school that has recently transitioned from a 3-5 school to a K-5 school. This transition has allowed us to reach our students at an earlier age and provide consistency with less transitions between schools.

I have a class full of inquisitive, curious, and intelligent kindergarteners!

They have a clear love for learning and enjoy coming to school each day. It is my job to ensure that they not only have fun each day, but that they learn while doing so. Each day is a new and exciting adventure!

My Project

Teaching kindergarteners to write is no simple feat! They have such great stories and ideas, but often lack the ability to put those thoughts on paper. It is my goal to help them become successful writers.

What better way to help kindergarteners learn to write than with the support of mentor texts?!

The Trait Crate plus utilizes fun, engaging texts to help students learn about different modes of writing. Through these lessons they will be guided and supported as they begin to put their thoughts into pictures and words. I can already feel their excitement when they finally feel confident in their writing!
