My Students

Early childhood education is my passion. I love seeing my students enter the classroom full of curiosity and wonder each and every day. What is truly unique about my students is that they come to us from all over the world. Majority of my students are learning English as a second language. Their unique cultural experiences allow us to explore and make sense of the world around us. My students enter the classroom as blank slates and exit as individuals embarking on their own educational journeys!

My Project

In Kindergarten we are instilling a love for reading! By allowing each child to have access to their own book box children are able to develop confidence, security and a sense of belonging in the classroom. Children will be able to easily access books that are tailored to meet their individual learning needs! These book boxes will also allow our classroom library to be organized by specific topics that interest my students. Reading is so important and having the materials to help us access literature in an organized manner would be helpful not only for myself but for my students! Help us make reading fun and organized!
