My Students

This is my first class of kindergarteners! This year will also be the first year for my students in a huge school setting! There are a lot of firsts flying around this school year.

My kindergarteners are energetic, critical thinkers, and problem solvers who love to learn every day and collaborate with their peers.

Everyone is one of a kind, creating this one of a kind kindergarten classroom! We thank you for your time and support in advance this school year.

My Project

As a first year teacher with a prior career in tech, I have an eager desire to create a classroom that breaks downs common expectations. From resource materials to student interactions, I approach each aspect of my class with a similar mindset of one in a start-up: How can I improve the learning process for students? These resources, Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tubs and Design & Build Engineering Centers, will allow my students to explore visually, audibly, and kinesthetically.

Albeit a tender age, these resources will have the power to trigger curiosity and personal interest in my students.

We ask you for your support of our class today!
