My Students

This upcoming school year I will be teaching Kindergarten in West Baltimore. This will be my first year at the school and I am so excited to begin this new journey with a group of 24 ambitious and energetic students.

Our school mission is to provide a high quality education program that accelerates student achievement.

We also strive to support the social and emotional well-being of each student within our safe, caring school community.

My goal is to provide students with the supplies they need to become lifelong learners and leaders.

My Project

Have you ever been in a kindergarten classroom that only has dull crayons in 8 different colors? Well, that's the current situation in my classroom and it is causing a lot of distress!

As the year has progressed my students have begun to take so much pride in their drawings and nothing causes a meltdown faster than when a five-year-old wants to color in the lines and they're forced to use a fat dull crayon.

Essentially the equivalent of asking Van Gough to paint with only his fingers. Another source of meltdowns? When the entire table is sharing one set of crayons and everyone NEEDS the same color. This project will provide students with their own set of crayons AND their own box to store them in. It will also save us all from many tears and headaches. I've also included some dry erase markers because wow do we go through those quickly and a classroom set of mailboxes because I am trying desperately to have less piles of paper in my classroom in 2020.

Thank you for helping us have less headaches in the new year!
