My Students

I work in a small rural district that prides itself on high academic achievements, strong community support and the mission to prepare students for the challenges that lie ahead. Students within the district come from various socio-economic background creating a diverse learning environment with it's own unique challenges.

My energetic and creative students enjoy working together to explore new academic concepts and enhance their character development.

The students like to be challenged and engaged in learning activities. Their willingness to try and their desire to succeed in their educational journey makes teaching kindergarten a joyful experience.

My Project

Young learners are always on the move! They frequently wiggle, stand and bounce throughout their day. Students benefit from flexible seating options by allowing them to choose seats that fit their preferred learning style. When students are comfortable in their environment, they tend to stay engaged in the learning proc

Providing my class with wobble seats and balance ball chairs, will enable students to move freely while they complete classroom tasks.

Increasing student focus and limiting distractions will create a better learning environment for young students and enhance academic growth. Kindergarteners would benefit from an age-appropriate environment where they can learn and interact with peers.
