My Students

Our school will be entering its 10th year come this September. In our pre-K class, that means over 180 students will have come and gone from this pre-K classroom. Along with that, many other students have called our room home for enrichment classes, after school programs, and summer camp.

Families send their precious children to our class everyday for us to help them take those first steps towards accomplishing great feats.

Children make this room their home for however long the stay and miss it dearly when they move on. It's something we take pride in and hope to continue doing what we love to do and that's nurture their love for learning.

I've been teaching at my first and current school for six years when the new school year approaches. No matter who enters through that door come September, they are part of our school family. I hope to provide them with the absolute best education we can offer.

My Project

Last year's bunch of pre-K kiddos were the most caring and compassionate group I've ever had. There wasn't a child that has a mean spirit in them. Many of them will go out of their way to help others zip up their jackets or guide them if they are astray. I believe snack time is a way to channel that compassion in the new pre-K kids.

Snack time is a very interesting period to witness.

We encourage all parents to send in a healthy snack for their child. Snack time is right after play centers and before outdoor play. It's a good mid-day eat to hold them over until lunch. The kids who bring snack bring a wide variety. You will see seaweed, sushi, rice crackers, vegetables, and all different kinds of fruits such as cantaloupe, kiwi, strawberries and dragon fruit.

Although the variety of diverse snacks is most impressive, many students do not have snacks because their parents cannot afford to send a snack in every day. These kids will often rely on leftover breakfast, which can get repetitive. They can't help but ask others to share with them or have a taste. Students are always willing to share, but the burden of feeding their classmates should not fall on them. Although they are generous enough to share, I would often see them share all but one piece of muffin, cracker, or cookie for themselves, sometimes even none.

No child should go hungry, especially when they are in school. The majority of my students qualify for free lunch. I am requesting a variety of healthy snacks to give to all of my students, so there is no need to seek out the few who are fortunate enough to have snacks.
