My Students

Our classroom is an beautiful place where amazing things happen everyday. Students come into this classroom from every walk of life imaginable. Upon walking into the classroom, you will see a diverse group of students who share the same love for school and friendship.

While all the students are so amazingly different, they all share a strong desire for learning and success.

These children strive for greatness every day, regardless of where they come from. Some children come from a family living in poverty and some from a country they moved from only days ago. No matter what, they are strong and resilient children who work hard every day to do well and learn to the best of their ability.

My Project

My students love to learn and play in different ways. They are excited to try new things, explore the world, and take everything in!

They are also young learners who are learning how to make friends, take turns and help one another.

An important way they do this is through play and center time in our classroom.

Kinetic sand is a mess-free sand that can be used to help children with sensory issues, anxiety or stress, and can be used in a wide variety of counseling techniques. It can help children understand their feelings, learn how to manage their anxiety, self-calm, and much, much more!
