My Students

I have 48 amazing, eager, and caring students in the kindergarten classroom with my teaching partner. They come to school every day with an excitement for learning!

I teach at a Title I school which means that a majority of my students are considered high poverty and many are second language learners.

My school embraces innovative ways to personalize learning for all of our students. Our administrator supports anything that benefits our students and their ability to make growth both academically and socially.

My Project

My kindergartners need a lot of practice and hands-on activities to learn their alphabet letters and practice reading sight words. They also need activities to help their fine motor skills. I am requesting Lakeshore alphabet learning games and activities including magnetic letters and a whiteboard, magnetic alphabet activity tins, sight word centers, and a learning letters activity center. All of these materials help students to practice letter recognition, sight words, and sounds in a fun and engaging way.

"Tell me and I forget - teach me and I remember - involve me and I learn." I believe this wholeheartedly and try to find activities that involve and engage my students in their learning.
