My Students

Mindset Matters and in Kindergarten we believe that every child can learn! They are always pushing themselves and wanting to dig deeper into learning. I feel as though I am always looking for something filled with engagement and excitement to keep their love for learning going. My students come from loving homes, yet all have their own challenges and stories. Together we make learning fun and help each other's brains stretch! We enjoy learning through play and exploration. We love learning!

My Project

My dream for my students has always been to have a comfy, inviting, and an engaging book area. I am requesting a listening center, book bins, and clipboards to use in a comfy place to enjoy great literature! One of my favorite parts of being a teacher is seeing the love children have when reading or listening to books! I have continued trying to make my book area become one of the most inviting areas in the classroom but could use help with updating some of the items. As a young child, I loved the book area in my class and I want them to feel the same!
