My Students

I am a first year teacher and have the privilege of teaching 21 of the most adorable kindergarteners! My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions!

We have been having a great time creating a close knit classroom family.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

Having a classroom full of manipulative and supplies like an easel, carpet, and a light table will help my Title I students learn and grow. They love to have hands-on learning activities, and furnishing my classroom will bring make this possible. This will help them to learn all the skills needed to go to first grade.

The products that I have chosen for the classroom will help each student no matter what their interest, level, or ability is.

The products focus on reading, math, science, and creating a calm homey classroom environment. Being a first year teacher I would love to surprise my students with a brand new classroom and make the rest of this school year the best ever!
