My Students

My amazing children are ages 3, 4, and 5 years old. They are creative, curious and so ready to learn. Our multi-age, inclusionary classroom is geared for children to learn through hands-on, active learning.

My children have such potential to become successful life long learners.

They demonstrate excitement and curiosity when it comes to learning in the classroom. With ongoing parental engagement and community support, they can become the successful individuals we know they can be, now and in the future.

Our rural community has seen many unfortunate changes in demographics over the past few years. Over 90% of my students have qualified for the program by meeting federal poverty guidelines. Many of our families/students deal with food insecurity, poverty, and homelessness.

Despite the challenges the children face every day, they want to learn and are excited about any new opportunities presented.

My Project

My students love the art center in our classroom. Every day during work time (free choice) many students choose to create little masterpieces! They love to explore the different textures and strokes that using various tools offer.

Creative arts is such a crucial part of early learning!

My students use glue, watercolors, paint, paper, and many other materials in extremely creative ways! With up to thirty-two children a day the supplies quickly run low. The art center is a great opportunity for the children to use their imagination, practice fine motor skills, and build social skills by working with a partner.
