My Students

I teach the littlest of scholars who come to school for the very first time. My classroom is in an urban, high poverty area were 100% of our students receive free or reduced lunch.

My students are energetic, passionate, kind, and come to school eager to learn in spite of the many disadvantages they are dealt early in life.

In order to prepare my little scholars for kindergarten, I must maximize their learning during the school day. It's my goal to provide a safe, comfortable classroom, full of hands-on materials and creative avenues that allow them to reach their fullest potential!

My Project

I attended a financial literacy session for young children.The presenter gifted us the curriculum. However, we need the materials to offer a truly developmentally appropriate and interactive financial learning experience. Kiddynomics is a set of lessons designed to introduce young children to the economic way of thinking. Informed decision-making is a critical thinking skill that students can use throughout their school, personal, and work lives. I like this curriculum because the lessons incorporate literacy (books), songs (c.d), dramatic play (Career costumes), and art (magnetic letters to create signage) to maintain student engagement.

Beginning economic education early and building on that learning throughout students’ education is the best way to ensure they develop vital decision-making skills.
