My Students

I have the most wonderful job in the world because I am a Bilingual Pre-kindergarten teacher. As a teacher I get to create an engaging classroom that promotes social and emotional developement. My students are amazing because they are able to speak two languages, and watching them on a daily basis is wonderful. My students come to school ready and eager to learn. I absolutely love watching them grow both physically and mentally. I am so fortunate to be able to be part of there learning and to see how they embrace there culture and others around them. My students inspire me every day to be the best teacher I can be.

My Project

My project is all about going back too basics, grabbing a book taking a picture walk or just having a discussion about what we just read. This library bookshelf will add character and finesse to our designated library section. My students will be in awe of such a beautiful book shelf. Our book shelf will be filled with different bilingual books where my students will flourish significantly through story time, book walks and role playing just to name a few. Our book shelf will benefit my students greatly because through these books and story time my they will be able to see themselves and connect to their culture and families. So get on board and help make this happen for Pre-k, where it all begins...
