My Students

My students are the future. I want to give my students the skills and tools to become engaged, inquisitive lifelong learners who have both the knowledge and the understanding to be positive leaders in our global world.

I teach Pre-Kindergarten in an international magnet program in an urban public school serving students of diverse national heritages, languages, and cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our class is almost a mini United Nations, and I encourage the children to develop personal cultural awareness, as well as respect, and appreciate the amazing diversity of the world around them. I teach a diverse group of students with various levels, needs, and interests. All of my students are curious and enthusiastic. They are filled with questions about themselves and the world around them. My students learn best through exploration and play, and I find that their learning experience is more meaningful and potent when they are having fun.

My Project

Children make sense of math best through hands-on activities. I want to help my students develop number sense through research-based materials that they can manipulate to understand number relationships.

Rekenrek boards and ten-frames are powerful math tools that will help my students create visual images of quantities in order to discover number relationships.

I want to give my students these powerful math tools to help them have a deeper understanding of the makeup of quantities and numbers in relationship to each other. This understanding will help them not only understand quantities but will also help them with simple addition and subtraction problems. I will use these hands-on tools during small group instruction to help my students develop number sense.
