My Students

We have a fantastic group of 20 students that I teach in the Pittsburgh community. They all receive reduced or free meals. Their ages are 3, 4, and 5 years old. They are an energetic, inquisitive, and delightful group. They learn through play and enjoy exploring their environment to make new discoveries. Our goal is to equip children with the educational tools and social skills necessary for a seamless transition to kindergarten and beyond. We provide children, age birth to five, with comprehensive programming designed to reinforce and respond to the unique strengths of each child individually.

Supportive learning environments help stimulate social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth in children.

We cultivate relationships with families to build bonds and encourage and support parent engagement and participation in program activities to help strengthen the family unit. Community partnerships are formed to establish a core network of support services and resources to children and families.

My Project

Our classroom does not have an air conditioner and in the late summer, early fall and late spring our room becomes very warm. On a 90 degree day, it at least gets to 100 degrees in our room and our students become cranky and cannot focus or take a rest.

Imagine your first school experience, you're away from home and your family and it's so uncomfortably hot!

You try to go to the calming corner and relax but can't get cooled down. Would you want to stay in a space and try your best to learn if you were that warm?
