My Students

This is my 22nd year teaching. 21 of those years have been in Kindergarten. I can't imagine teaching any other grade. I see such wonderful changes that take place in just this one school year. They come to me not knowing how to write their names nor able to even draw stick figures. By the end of the year, they are able to write sentences and can draw very detailed pictures with a lot of colors. It is very satisfying to witness such accomplishments. I love to see their little eyes shine when I tell them how good their handwriting has become or how artistic their drawings are, their spelling, and using spaces in sentences. I am not that artistic, but they make me feel like I am. After I model a writing or drawing activity, they "ooooh" and "aww" my work. It just makes you giggle.

My sweet students come in each day with a big smile ready to learn something new.

I love that they feel so loved by me and that school is such a happy place for them. I get called Mama almost as much as my name.

My Project

In this project, I am trying to create a housekeeping center where the children can have fun playing while working on their social skills. This is a part of kindergarten that has been lost in some areas , but is so important in the growth of young children. New research comes out daily reinforcing how important play is for the necessary growth and maturity of children. In my class, I like to think we "work hard and play hard".

I work hard to create a class environment that is enjoyable for all children.

I like to think I am encouraging well rounded children in my classroom environment.

I am asking for laundry detergent to wash the doll clothes with. I like for the kids to play with all the materials , but I like to keep them fresh and clean too.
