My Students

I teach three and four year old children in a Head Start classroom. My students work hard daily to prepare for Kindergarten and have a ton of fun along the way!

My classroom provides comprehensive early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families.

We recognize and encourage individual talents and capabilities in safe, nurturing and structured surroundings where children and families can achieve their personal goals.

My students are learning to read, write, count, build social relationships, follow directions, and so much more. They are eager to learn and grow every day.

My Project

When you have a classroom full of preschoolers, things can get pretty crazy; especially when they are learning and having fun. In order to keep our classroom running smoothly, we need to keep everything neat and organized in our classroom.

Classroom organizers and storage bins for paperwork, art work, toys, writing supplies, and books, will help our students learn to take care of their classroom.

I will label the storage bins with words and pictures of their intended contents so that my students can learn to clean up after themselves and feel pride in taking care of our classroom. Having sturdy, colorful, containers will make this task fun and obtainable. The paperwork organizers will ensure that everyone knows where to put their school work during the day (including teachers)! Having these items to organize our classroom will help tremendously when we start school in September, as I will have more time to plan lessons, meet my new students, and make their introduction to school special, instead of worrying where I put the attendance sheet, or why the building blocks were "put away" in the water table!

In starting my 6th year as a Head Start teacher, I have learned that having a good organizational system is key to a positive learning environment. When there is a place for everything, and everything in its place, we have more time to play and learn!
