My Students

I teach a dynamic group of fabulous kindergarten students in an​ extremely diverse school in New York. My students love reading funny stories, writing, poetry, creating art, exploring in science, learning new words, building, dancing, singing, playing math games, playing with puppets, and learning new facts.

My class absolutely loves our beloved puppet, Chef Lotsa Words.

He cooks up sight words, poems, vocabulary words, and books each day in his "magic" pot. My students are funny, enthusiastic, inquisitive, compassionate, and sweet.

My Project

I want my students to explore having fun while eating healthy food! I would love to have a breakfast in class where my students can make faces on pancakes using fruit! I would love for each student to receive their own copy of Funny Food Made Easy: Creative, Fun, and Healthy Breakfasts, Lunches and Snacks, so their families can continue to make healthy and funny meals together! I know that my students and their families will love this incredible book!

Your donation will inspire my students and their families to create healthy meals by creating food art!

Please help us play with our food!
