My Students

Our classroom is a place where music and movement are indispensable to the learning process. We work and play together every day, learning, growing, and reaching out to each other as we endeavor to make a difference in the world.

Each student is unique and indispensable to our classroom community.

We call ourselves "OWLS" which stands for "outstanding, wonderful learners." And we do love to learn. Hands-on learning and inquiry-based discovery are key to our daily education. With many emergent readers, our classroom is an environment rich in literacy. Young students are engaged, exposed, and excited about reading and learning in general.

There is a positive energy that exists when entering our classroom. Our school is a new school where the theme of letting our individual songs soar is encouraged. We celebrate success, respect, and kindness and as such, these traits are in abundance. There is a enveloping sense of belonging within the walls of this new building. Students strive and thrive to be the best that they can be.

My Project

Kindergarteners love to explore and create. My students are "makers" by nature; they have an inner need to assemble, craft, and construct. They are constantly asking me for extra pieces of string or popsicle sticks to build their visionary creations.

My students need supplies and a "space" to be makers.

A MakersSpace in our classroom will allow these little students to be innovative, curious, and develop problem solving skills while having the freedom to for hands-on exploration. The tabletop will provide the space to create, the craft tape, pompoms, tissue paper and collage box will provide the beginnings of the materials these little engineers need to get started.
