My Students

I will begin my teaching career in in September as a kindergarten teacher. Teaching kindergarten has always been my passion, and I am more than excited to begin my journey this fall! Although I have yet to meet my 25 new friends, I know that I will have a range of students in my classroom. Some with learning difficulties, other with difficulties outside of school such as poverty or being homeless. Regardless of their situations, it is my job to ensure that their first school experience is a positive one.

One of the many things I love about kindergarten is their endless imaginations and excitement for new knowledge.

Kindergarten is a grade full of wonder, curiosity, and growth, and it is my job to keep that excitement alive to create lifelong learners.

My Project

The students in my class will use these the tablets to access apps to enrich and develop stronger skills in Math, Language Arts, and Reading. With these tables the students will be able to engage in educational websites and games, like RAZ Kids. We currently do not have any computers or IPads available to Kindergarten due to budget cuts, to use during center time. Adding tablets would allow more children to have learning options available.

My students come to school with smiles on their faces and eager to learn each day.

With these tablets I will be able to bring 21st century learning to class.
