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 strive to help them become the best version of themselves.
I want them to persevere, to change their mindset, to believe in themselves, and to know that their education is so important.
From the moment they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. It is my goal to inspire the earliest learners to continue on the path of academic excellence in a creative and positive way.
Kindergarten sets the stage for a child's educational career! It is a crucial year in a child's schooling because they are the building block so it is important that my students know the necessary skills for future standards. In order to give my students a strong mathematics foundation, they need to be given the opportunity to think deeper about numbers with the ETA hand2mind Daily Math Fluency. These talks have a focused scope and sequence of number talks to increase math fluency while embedding a hands-on learning approach.
Research shows that learning through hands-on approach stimulates deeper thinking.
Number talks along with number paths enhance an environment for deeper mathematical thinkers. In early childhood education, it is our job to set the framework for little ones to have a strong mathematical foundation.
