My Students

Through the brief interactions at kindergarten screening, I could already see the excitement in my students eyes for the upcoming school year. They are kind, motivated, and ready to learn!

My students are excited and grateful to learn and I cannot wait to see what the school year holds for them.

From our first time meeting, before the school year begins, they were filled with questions and eagerness and I could not ask for anything else as their teacher.

If I accomplish one thing this year, my hope is to inspire and build the love for learning in each one of my students!

My Project

On my wish list I have added leveled books, as well as primary composition notebooks. These two items are essential for more than just learning how to read and write in a kindergarten classroom.

Kindergarten is a special time for students.

This is their first exposure to the wonderful world of life long learning, and my goal is for students to love being there. This involves teaching students how to love to read and write.

With having the leveled books, and primary composition notebooks , I will be able to support all my students and help build that love for reading and writing.
