My Students

I have a very diverse classroom, we strive to ensue a good moral value that we are all the same and that we are all equal.

Our little classroom family has some of the brightest students that i have ever taught.

They deserve the very best that I can give them.

The laughter and wisdom that comes from these children just makes you light up. And their individuality just makes you realize what special little people we are sending out into the world once they graduate.

My Project

Every year my assistant teacher and I purchase graduation gowns for our students who will leave us and go to Kindergarten.

This year we have an astounding 18 graduates and the cost is just too much for us to do by ourselves.

The gowns mean accomplishment to these young students.

To watch these children put on their cap and gown, get pictures taken, walk to the stage with their families cheering proudly, would bring a smile to anyone's face and a tear to your eye.

They know it's their time to move on to a new school and we really like to help them celebrate it!
