My Students

This year started a new teaching chapter when I moved to first grade in a new school in a new district! My students are eager to learn and explore! I want to provide my students with a rich, engaging, exciting classroom to keep them intrigued and loving school. We are a magnet school with a focus on language and culture, as well as technology integration.

Every student is different, so I strive to differentiate for all of my kids to meet their individual needs.

This requires time, energy, and most of all, resources. I'm working towards building my new first grade classroom to be the best it can be for my little ones!

My Project

As a new school, we are working hard to build a connected community of students, families, and staff. We are hosting a Family Date Night Paint Night to give students a chance to explore the world of painting, while also bringing families together and engaging in some quality time!

We need a variety of painting materials like tempera paint, canvas and brushes to ensure all of our students are able to participate and take home a family masterpiece!

Each family will work together to create a piece inspired by Kandinsky's Concentric Circles. Students will be able to apply math concepts while also learning about the connection between art, emotions, and music! We can't wait to help our children's creativity shine!
