My Students

From learning our numbers and letters to experiencing the joy in simple things like recognizing their name for the first time or having lunch in the cafeteria, my students show progress every single day. Each moment is a new learning adventure. Each day brings new growth and challenges that they will tackle with zest and enthusiasm.

Together we are striving to create a safe community of learners filled with compassion, kindness, and concern for others.

We are practicing important life skills such as following directions, cleaning up our own messes, sharing and taking turns, being honest and truthful in all our interactions, and being safe, respectful, and responsible.

Kindergarten should be an environment filled with hands-on learning experiences. When my students are able to engage in these activities first hand, they better understand the world around them and their place in it.

My Project

My amazing students are trying so hard to learn everything expected of them this year. Sometimes, being 5-years-old makes it hard to sit still and focus. Having a variety of fidget and sensory tools and accessories will help all of my students, not just those with ADHD. Being able to wiggle and learn without disturbing others will increase our stamina and reduce frustration.

Kindergarten is the first experience many children have to be friends with others who look and talk differently than they do.

Books that help teach about equity and diversity will help my students understand that their differences help make them the amazing, unique people they are. In addition, these same books and others on mindfulness, will help them recognize that inside we are all very similar with hopes, dreams and aspirations that deserve to be celebrated.
