My Students

Think back on your own Kindergarten experience. Did you love coming to school; listening to stories, playing at recess or building with blocks? The magic of Kindergarten is not only gaining the skills required to be a 21st century learner but supporting our youngest learner with developing the executive functioning skills children need to thrive. The guided inquiry and magic of play will create lifelong learners who can collaborate and take risks. Research shows students who experience a quality early childhood education, have stronger problem-solving skills, and the social-emotional skills needed to succeed in today’s job market. When children are nurtured as well as taught to read, write, and think critically, their growth can be endless. I love teaching Kindergarten at a public elementary school in Los Angeles, CA.

Our students come from a low socioeconomic background: all students qualify for Free/Reduced-price lunch, and the majority of the students are English Learners.

However, statistics don’t tell the whole story. My students are inquisitive, hard working, and caring. They will count, read, write but most important, become kind humans ready to make this world a better place!

My Project

Everyone loves Legos big and small. Legos are a staple of childhood. My students deserve a class set of legos to build, design and explore with everyday. Legos build brain power.

Legos give students the opportunity to design and construct their own ideas and dreams, there is no right or wrong with Legos, only possibilities.

My students need Legos to use in our classroom during our STEAM playtime, a free exploration activity. An opportunity for them to create and design, practicing the skills of revision and sharing along the way.

Legos offer my little learners the chance to develop the skills needed to think like an engineer, architect and designer. Legos help practice those critical thinking skills, getting the students ready to be tomorrow's innovators.
