My Students

My students are my world and they are amazing! Each child is full of potential. They are passionate about learning and passionate about their friendships. My students love coming to school and spending time in our classroom. Each child has varying interests, abilities, and experiences. We are a room full of diverse learners. I teach high ability students as well as special education students. Every student is valued in my classroom.

Each child has a desire to learn and do their very best.

They are great listeners and take an active role in their learning. They make my job so rewarding.

My Project

Can you imagine being five years old and given rigorous academic tasks all day? Children also need time to play. Playing is hard work in kindergarten and students learn so much while playing. I have requested a real cash register. Students will love this! They will be able to play pretend while also counting change and learning the value of money! I have also requested a veterinarian and restaurant kit so students can experience different careers and learn new vocabulary. My students also need a baby doll and sensory paint.

There is a national movement encourage more play in the classroom and I believe in this whole heartedly.

Kids haven't stopped being kids. We need to let them be little and allow them time to play! Playing is how children learn!
