My Students

All of my students are from low-income families and qualify for free lunch. The majority of the students are English language learners. Growing up as an English language learner myself, I remember not being able to understand my kindergarten teacher. Now, a kindergarten teacher myself, and working at a low-income, inner-city neighborhood public school, I can identify and empathize with many of my little learners. Kindergarten is the exciting year when the love of learning is first seeded and cultivated.

My classroom is all about laughing, sharing, and learning.

The classroom is the place where young learners begin to develop and practice social and academic skills. The Golden Rule, treat others the way that you would like to be treated, is taught and practiced right along with the ABCs and counting 1-2-3.

My Project

Without a doubt, the Covid-19 pandemic has been a game-changer for everyone. This is especially true for my young learners who started kindergarten with distance learning. While resilient, this pandemic has affected their social and emotional well-being. As more and more students are returning to the classroom, I would love for them to celebrate this by having their words and drawings be brought to life!

The Cricut Maker will allow my students to bring their words and designs alive!

Covid-19 caused a lot of worry and anxiety, even in kindergarteners. I want to ease this distress by letting my students express their emotions. The Cricut Maker will give them a creative outlet as they will be able to personalize t-shirts with inspirational quotes and drawings. This project will help build classroom community and help reinforce the big idea that together, we are stronger!
