My Students

I teach 21 amazing and adorable kindergarten scholars. They enter my classroom with big smiles, happy, and ready to learn. Many students that come to our school do not speak English and have no preschool experience. We also have exceptional students included in our class.

We are a Global Magnet Title I School serving 65% low-income families who speak limited English.

We offer Mandarin Chinese and Spanish to our students. Our school also serves parents who work multiple jobs to help make ends meet.

My Project

It's never to early to teach students how to earn, save, and make money. What a great way to teach my Kindergarten students about ways to be financially smart.

Having journal books will help teach students to be creative learners and thinkers about their business vision and also about learning the value of money from around the world.

They will create their dream business using shapes, markers, dice, and include wonderful art pictures using the mod podge. I will incorporate traveling across the world having students research places an include creating business cards from around the world using craft paper. The journal books will be used daily for math, literacy, science, and other subject as we journey across the world.

Your donations will help get my students thinking about how to start a business and be visionary spenders.
