My Students

Energetic, compassionate, and curious are just a few adjectives that describe my amazing group of kindergartners! They love to learn, play, and build connections with others. My kids come from all different backgrounds and have varying experiences of life so far.

The newest change at our school came about due to the Camp Fire in Paradise, CA.

On November 8th 2018, the most devastating wildfire in California's history engulfed the town of Paradise and some of the surrounding areas. Luckily, our school in neighboring Chico, CA is safe. Many students in my class had family members impacted by the fire (loss of homes, etc.), and all of my students saw some of the side effects of the fire (evacuating, smoke, missed school, people in town needing assistance, etc.).

We are so excited to be back in school, although we are adapting to many changes. We have some awesome new students at our school (and in our class!!) that have been displaced due to the fire. We also have a lot of students who are dealing with trauma, worry, anxiety, and grief. I would love to be able to supply my students with these new supplies and tools!

My Project

Kindergarten students enter school at a wide range of different levels. Some enter the room with multiple years of preschool, Pre-k, and Tk, while others are entering a classroom for the very first time.

As kindergarten teachers, we work to give each and every student what they need to learn and grow!

We do differentiated reading groups, to focus on each group's current level. We make different activities to narrow that gap. We work hard with our students who are struggling to catch up, while still challenging those that are flying ahead.

This collection of books will allow me to provide my students with interesting books and their own levels! These books will be used in our small groups, but they will also go home in book bags. Parents are such an important resource in their child's education. Most parents want to help but need some guidance and resources. These books will help to bridge that gap!

Thank you for helping us grow through reading!
