My Students

We love Kindergarten! My students are an energetic group of 5 and 6 year-olds. Some are new to the school and some have attended preschool. Being at an International Baccalaureate School, we are constantly soaking up knowledge while also reflecting on what we just learned.

I love it ​when I see their bright eyes light up with every new adventure we learn in school.

All of my students are learning how to inquire about themselves and the world around them. They get so excited about our everyday learning and their passion to take everything in is always a joy to see.

My Project

Tempera paint is used throughout the year in my classroom. I try to incorporate as many art projects as I can within the kindergarten curriculum. I truly believe art is an essential part of an educational experience that often gets lost with the pressure of teaching kindergarten standards.

These paint supplies are a classroom necessity because they are a great learning extension to what is being taught in class.

Without the opportunity to make art, kids aren't expressing and exploring an important aspect of their learning. I hope that my kids will have every opportunity they can to express their thinking through art, all while having a great time becoming artists!
