My Students

"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world." - Maria Montessori.

I teach first, second, and third graders in an urban public Montessori school.

They are curious learners that work and learn from each other! Through the prepared environment, the students use materials to gain understanding and move to abstraction. They learn from each other and challenge each other to be the best they can be.

Our school zone includes the local shelter. We have multiple families who are struggling to meet their basic needs. The classroom is a safe, consistent place for them to come and be a part of our school family. As a teacher, my hope is that they become confident in who they are and free to question, explore, and understand this world we live in.

My Project

I am excited about these works for my classroom. I attended the American Montessori Conference and was able to browse through many of their materials. The punctuation and grammar stories provide an age appropriate definition for students to independently explore and understand our written language. The Silly and Sensible Sentences provide students with a fun way for students to learn and comprehend what they are reading. The History of Numbers and Writing provide students with a greater understanding of where are language came from. Students will be able to go back in time and see the origin of where numbers and letters came from. Thank you for supporting my students!
