My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach Kindergarten in an inner city school.

This is my 33rd year here with the last 25 years in Kindergarten. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school. They feel safe and loved here.

My Project

My Kindergarten kiddos need some hands-on STEM activities to help them learn! We need a magna-tiles set, a chain reactions set and an engineering set where students can construct bridges, vehicles, and houses.

My kindergarteners thrive when given hands-on activities to do especially working in small groups!

I want them to be engaged in open-ended building with minimal teacher involvement. I want them to become problem solvers and to be able to work independently or in a group setting. It is amazing to watch their minds work and learn! These activities will help keep them up and moving all while designing and learning!
