My Students

My integrated early childhood classes are made up of students and families from all walks of life. Some of my students have exceptional needs, some are from at-risk populations, and some are dual-language learners. The diversity within our classes helps me and the other teachers keep our instruction relevant and beneficial to all learners.

As a group, we are always learning and growing from each other.

Our class loves to move and dance, to jump and laugh, and to play and create. We are working on solving problems, working together, and how to be a good friend.

My Project

Research shows the benefits of early literacy skills helping to support positive outcomes for students who come from a background of poverty. A listening center will help our students to develop early literacy, emergent reading, and self-regulation skills.

Listening centers are an educational and engaging way to get students involved in a book and support their independence during reading.

Who doesn't love listening to a great story-teller?

As the older students move on to kindergarten, they'll have an advantage over their peers of long-term exposure to positive literacy habits including listening stamina, emergent decoding, and pacing. The value of this exposure and knowledge is life-changing to young students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
