My Students

Working in a Title I school as a teacher of 5 years, entering my 6th year, I embarked on a new challenge, and that was becoming a kindergarten teacher. Going from 2nd grade to 28 kinders, who are fun, spunky and eager to learn has been very heartwarming and eye opening at the same time. As a teacher in a new grade, some of the simple supplies I took for granted as a 2nd grade teacher, I have learned to appreciate the great need for them as a kindergarten teacher. My students have learned my expectations, but also have learned how to work together and have been able to grow in such a short time. They come daily, ready to learn and expand their ever growing thirst for learning and fun.

These young minds have shown me that it is a joy to come to work and to expand my teaching in many different ways through hands on materials and exploration.

We approach each day to create and learn through many different ways. Not just putting pencil to paper. My students love creating artwork, exploring with hands on manipulatives, building, and playing with toys during social interactive time.

My Project

Some of the materials that I am asking for such as pencils, white board markers, white board erasers will help my students will their morning work and classroom work. Glue sticks are in great need as my kindergartners cut and glue with hands on stations and art projects. Construction paper is used a lot between stations and art projects. I am also asking for binders and paper protectors to help create an end of the year memory book for my students. Page protectors are also used for students to do practice tracing to learn how to write their names, letters, numbers, and more. There are also building and stem activities for my students to enjoy in our classroom. All of these materials are in great need and we would be forever grateful if we could receive these for our classroom!
