My Students

Every day, I have the joy of creating memories of success, failure, and perseverance while teaching kindergartners the joys of learning.

My kindergartners want to be the best that they can, yet our state is 49th in school funding.

We are a Title I school, where everyone receives free breakfast and most receive free or reduced-price lunch. Many of my students come from trauma-filled backgrounds, low-income​ families, and will be the first to go to college.

Despite these struggles, my 5-year-old scholars are still inquisitive. They are full of questions, from the iconic "Why is the sky blue?" to the question I was asked the other day, "Why do apples come in different colors?" I want my students to further their curiosity by learning how to read, write, do the math, and be knowledgeable about the world. Furthermore, I want them to go home and share their learning with their families.

My Project

Many of my kindergarten students enter my classroom with little-to-no number sense or ability to understand place value.

These hands-on math activities will allow my 5-year-old scholars to explore many different math concepts.

The number houses will allow young mathematicians to manipulate and gain an understanding that multiple combinations of numbers can equal 10. The "find the number" sensory center, students can literally "dig" into the meaning of numbers 1 through 10. This year, I have 3 students really into robots, so the number-bots will facilitate number recognition. Finally, the large magnetic numbers will help all 25 of my kindergarten students see math as we do it on our whole-group carpet.
