My Students

I am blessed to teach at such a small and wonderful school. We are located in a small and friendly community. My students are super special to me and I truly love what I do. I am also very excited to be teaching in a school of science and technology.

I am teaching PreK this year as we just opened our public school PreK.

We are very excited about this and I look forward to the transition.

It is going to be a great year working with preschool. I love teaching to the little ones. Teaching is my passion. Making a difference in the lives of students is such a great joy for me.

My Project

I have a brand new PreK that we just opened in August 2018. We are in high need of STEAM activities and gross motor equipment that my new preschoolers can use to learn and grow. We have chosen different types of blocks and STEM games that they can learn to engineer with. Seesaws, climbers and a outdoor playhouse so they can increase gross motor skills and their social skills. There are also counting activities, exploring tools. A huge item that we need is a safe and fun sand table for their fine motor skills. Also an alphabet robot for letter learning. There is so much in this project for my little ones to use on a daily basis and learn from. I am super excited about this project.
