My Students

My students come from a wide range of socioeconomic, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. They have a wide mix of cognitive, emotional and social backgrounds. My students range in age from 3 years to 5 years old. Many of them have experienced lives filled with trauma and challenges that I, at 46 years of age, have never been faced with, yet they show up day after day with loving smiles, hugs, and joyful spirits. They are curious about the world around them, and they are eager to learn everything they can. They are global learners who will inspire the world.

It is my honor and pleasure to serve my students by preparing lessons that will engage them, inspire their passion and desire for learning and develop their drive for lifelong learning.

My students' desire to learn is much stronger than the challenges that face them. It brings me great joy to see my students make progress on a daily basis. Experiences, opportunities and thoughtful planning help them to build and develop skills that are delayed and improve their cognition. Our student population is 26% Hispanic, 6% Multiracial, .1% Hawaiian / Pacific Islander, 34.4% White, 31.7% Black and .07% Asian.

My Project

Help my students meet the science standard. Science Foundation 1: Physical Science Early learners develop foundational skills in learning and understanding the properties of objects and changes in the physical world.

There is so much to learn and explore with the liquid matter.

Sensory Ooze tubes, splash pads, and Color Drop liquid motion tubs will allow my students to see how liquid matter moves. They and see the physical properties of a variety of liquids and how they interact with each other. These toys will increase their enjoyment, and engagement as we explore the liquid matter.

These toys will allow my students to Investigate and describe what they observe and begin to understand the properties of objects.
