My Students

This is an integrated preschool classroom with students with disabilities and typically developing students, learning and growing together. My students are excited to come to school to play and learn.

My preschool classroom is a place of challenge, discovery and exploration!

Through carefully designed classroom and instruction, students play their way to learning. My classroom develops the whole child, with learning opportunities to enhance students socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically. They are gaining an invaluable foundation to become successful lifelong learners.

My Project

My children need an Ipad to take a fantastic journey up the Red Carpet of fame and learning. Using the Ipad to record our puppet theater thrills will open up a world of learning. Our children will be engaged in fun literacy stories while using technology, using their little engineering minds for the accompanying STEM projects, and learning how to play with others in a creative fun way. I see children "traveling" to far-off places, building language, becoming mathematicians, and developing dreams.

Lights, Camera,'s time to fund our future stars!

Each donation, regardless of size, is an acknowledgment that you believe in these kids and their future. You believe they will do great things and reach for the stars - or beyond.
