My Students

My students are eager to learn new things. They are hands on learners with high energy levels. They love learning in large and small group environments. They come from diverse backgrounds. Being in a university town, I teach the children of college professors and college students. I also have students from backgrounds with limited enrichment opportunities. It is not uncommon for two students sitting side by side to have such different backgrounds, that child A may have a larger vocabulary than child B’s caregiver. However, wherever a student comes from they all have infinite potential, and I can’t wait to see them grow! Your support will be very beneficial to their education.

My Project

“Children love to find out how things work! With the Tubes Experiment Set, they’ll develop fine motor and problem-solving skills while discovering creative new ways to construct the tubes. The set also ignites their inner scientist as they investigate, construct, and test important concepts such as cause and effect.” These are all skills my pre-kindergarteners need to be successful. With the Tubes Exoerinent Set my students will have so much fun they might not even know they’re learning. This set is also very open ended and creative. Some students will find security in following the provided task cards. Others will enjoy making original creations. The possibilities are endless.
