My Students

We are an open philosophy school with a diverse community. In open classrooms, the emphasis is placed on individuality and reaching each child’s potential.

We strive to provide differentiation of instruction, experiential learning, and hands-on activities.

Parent involvement is encouraged at all levels of the school program.

Our kindergarten children are all eager learners and curious about their environment. They are excited to be in school and we strive to provide an environment that is child centered, welcoming, and inviting.

My Project

Our kindergartners will be working on their independent reading and the listening center time is the perfect opportunity to fall in love with books and reading. Headphones are an essential part of this center time.

Our Kindergarten children are so excited about learning to read and listening to stories read aloud helps with this process.

A quality listening center would be so helpful with this endeavor. It seems that every time the children go to listen to a book the headphones either are not working properly or the cords are tangled. Often the headphones do not fit properly. It takes valuable teaching time to either untangle the wires or find a pair that is working properly. The Lakeshore wireless headphones will solve many problems and allow me to spend more time teaching. Wireless headphones would also allow the children the freedom to listen to the stories anywhere and do so comfortably.
