My Students

My kindergarten students come from all different backgrounds which makes my classroom that much more fun. They all have such different interests and come from such diverse backgrounds that it makes my classroom a beautiful painting of different colors. While some students are learning to read and write others are working on imitating letter sounds and blending words.

These children have such a fire for learning it warms my heart.

They love to read, count, write and boogie to some sweet tunes. In my classroom my number one rule is to be kind, because if we are just kind to one another we can make this world a better place. I try to provide a happy, warm and inviting place for my children because each of their home lives are different, some better than others.

My Project

Every classroom deserves to feel like home. By providing comfortable reading chairs for reading station and games to play at stations can make the world of difference. Also, since our school is so diverse we have a lot of students whose families cannot afford what is on our school supply list, so by providing some crayons and glue can make a child feel like they belong.

My students dearly want a place where they can feel safe and loved.

I want my students to keep growing that fire for learning and I want to be able to provide them with the proper tools to do so.
