My Students

One of my favorite things about teaching kindergarten students is their unbound curiosity. Their enthusiasm for learning and willingness to explore and try new things is inspiring.

These children may be small, but they are mighty and I am in awe of their potential.

My students come from all across the city, including the nearby military base and the surrounding neighborhood. With students and families from a wide variety of socio economic circumstances and cultural backgrounds, our diversity enriches our conversations, deepens our relationships, and broadens our perspectives.

These little ones are our future and I could not be more honored to be part of their educational journey!

My Project

In Montessori, we focus on the life cycle of many animals. The supplies funded through this project will allow the children to experience the life cycle of the chicken first hand. Beginning with looking at the parts of an egg to incubating and hatching chicks, to finally holding the cute chicks, the children thoroughly enjoy this hands-on experience. In the past, I have always borrowed the materials necessary for hatching eggs. It is my hope that through this project, I can ensure that children for years to come can experience the miracle of life.

There is nothing compared to hearing the cheap of a chick as it uses its beak to crack its shell and emerge into the world.
