My Students

Bright, energetic, engaged 5-year-olds enter my classroom each day eager to work and learn. They approach learning in new ways which can be unfamiliar to adults since these students have grown up with technology as part of their everyday life since infancy.

"If we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow." - John Dewey

It is my goal to help my students become investigators, to explore, and to learn in the safest most exciting environment possible!

My Project

I am a veteran teacher who is new to a Full-Day Kindergarten program. We are having so much fun learning every day in our classroom and the addition of these fantastic hands-on activities will really help make our classroom complete!

"Play, it brings joy, it is within this context that learning can occur." -Kyle Snow

Adding the unifix cubes, geoboards, and linking cubes will truly help my kindergartners be able to connect what we are learning in math. It is a concrete model, the hands-on approach, that brings this to real life for kids. My students will touch and learn!
