My Students

My students are extremely creative, thoughtful and full of exciting questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions!

Despite the personal hardships that they may face on a daily, my students come to school each day willingly ready to learn, try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

Truly, these children are my inspiration and I want to provide them with the ultimate math experience!

My Project

Math is critical and is so important for the foundation of children.

Math skills taught in preschool are designed to provide the foundation children need to succeed in elementary school and beyond.

From preschool to the end of elementary school, children are setting the foundation for future life skills.

By setting the foundation to understand terminology and concepts early, children are prepared to apply the information in a classroom setting. The concepts are already understood, so elementary teachers are able to focus on the application of ideas.

It is important that I make math an enjoyable experience for my students and with these supplies I am confident they will truly enjoy.
