My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher in a small, yet extremely fast growing school district in Alabama. Our vision as a school district is to provide opportunities and challenges that will prepare each student for college/career/adulthood in the 21st Century. Our mission is to educate and prepare each student to succeed in an ever changing world and we believe effective teachers and leaders are the key to student achievement.

A typical day in my classroom consists of 19 students, all with a variety of needs.

My goal as the teacher is to create the best possible learning environment for my students. When students are provided with a learning environment that is socially, emotionally, and physically supportive, the students' confidence, engagement, and achievement will rise.

My Project

Allowing children to play at a sand and water table by themselves and with others helps them to develop fine motor skills like those necessary to use a small shovel, pull a truck, and build a castle. Play can also help children develop social skills like problem solving, sharing, and communicating as well as develop language skills when writing letters in the sand. Sand play offers a limited amount of space and toys for children to share while accomplishing goals they set for themselves like building a castle together.

Playing in the sand can be a great opportunity for children to have unstructured play time.

Whether shaped into castles, dug, dripped, sifted, or buried, sand can take many different forms, thus offering endless opportunities for fun and learning!
