My Students

My classroom is often the first step in my students' education experience. By providing a positive experience the students will develop a love of learning that will follow them to elementary school. Our school's motto is Good Beginnings Never End! The majority of the students I work with come from low income and single parent households. My classroom also consists of students from numerous cultures.

My students love coming to school each day, and they greet me with a smile and hug.

The excitement I see on their faces each day makes me strive to be the best teacher I can be.

My Project

My favorite time of the school day is reading to my students. Preschool children love listening to books but often get frustrated because they are not yet able to read independently. Often the students do not encounter opportunities to hear books in their daily lives away from school. I believe the addition of a listening center will help expose my children to more opportunities to listen to books.

Developing good listening skills early will help aide the students in being successful later in their educational journey.

Some of the major benefits of a listening center is the students will be exposed to new vocabulary words and they will develop critical comprehension skill. The addition of a listening center in my classroom will help the students have more opportunities to listen to books throughout the day.
