My Students

My students are fun, sweet and energetic and LOVE to learn! They all have different learning styles, but all have high energy. All my students are special in their own way and they deserve the BEST environment to learn in.

My students come from all different demographics.

Some families have one parent who work​ or no parents that work. The children and families I work with are all amazing, and deserving of things to help facilitate their learning in the best way possible.

My Project

Outdoor classrooms are so important for children to explore the natural world! Most kids are stuck indoors for most of their school day. We have started an outdoor play space (outdoor classroom) to our program to promote learning through nature and outdoor experiences. Children learn best through experiences, and lots of space to learn.

Outdoor play helps promote social, and emotional, and physical development, through the exploration of their senses, sight, and experiences.

They have the opportunity to discover, create, and problem-solve through these experiences outdoors. Many of these experiences will help my students learn to take risks, try new things, and gain an understanding of the natural world!
