My Students

My students range from 3-5 years old and are able to qualify for our preschool by either having a developmental delay or being low income. This program gives children from all cultures, areas, abilities and various incomes an opportunity to learn and thrive within the district. My energetic preschoolers enter the classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore. They love being exposed to so many different experiences and opportunities and gleam with pride and excitement at learning new skills. They are an amazing group of kids!

My Project

Ever wanted to cook and not had all of the ingredients? In our preschool classroom, our kitchen center supplies are either very loved or missing pieces...which can be very frustrating for our students. Kids love playing in the kitchen center and it’s an amazing opportunity to help them with: social and social communication skills, adaptive and self help skills, math, early literacy, and help build and develop their imaginations. Kids learn through play and having these materials will give them access to new opportunities, new experiences, new vocabulary, etc. All students love going to dramatic play center and this just helps us to enhance one of our most loved centers.
