My Students

The students in my classroom enter my door each morning with hearts that desire to learn and to grow. Our classroom consists of students from diverse backgrounds; each kiddo brings something unique and special to our classroom community.

Our school believes that ALL students can succeed if only they are given the tools to do so.

In our classroom, we learn in different ways and explore topics through communication and engaging activities. Our classroom is home to both my students and me. Within our four walls, we learn about math, science, social studies, reading, writing, and, most importantly, how to care about others.

My Project

As I prepare to teach kindergarten for the first time, I am hoping to gather a collection of engaging and hands-on learning materials for the students in my classroom to utilize as they begin to develop a deep love for learning.

The materials in this project will help students to develop their knowledge of letters and numbers, and will also allow them to utilize this new knowledge in a variety of exciting ways.

I believe that students learn best when they become active participants in their own learning, and I believe that all of the materials included in this project will help them to do so.

Thank you SO much for taking a look at my project, and for your support of my classroom and my sweet students.
