My Students

I have a wonderful and diverse group of students. I have over six different languages spoken in my classroom. Many of my students speak very little English and have just recently come to the United States as refugees from other countries. The diversity in the classroom can cause challenges for teaching, but it also makes my room unique and special! I wouldn't have it any other way!

My students love to learn, laugh and play!

They are curious, self-motivated learners who always want to know more!

My Project

We are requesting a set of 8 headphones. We will use these headphones in our listing, IPad, and computer areas. We go through a lot of headphones during the year due to general wear and tear from our kindergarten students. We love the headphones because students can listen and work without disturbing others with the noises coming from the technology.

We are also requesting black and colored ink for our classroom printer.

We are always printing things we have made from apps on the IPad and websites on the computer. Since my students are only 5 years old it is more exciting and fun to see their work displayed in bright, bold colors!
