My Students

Being able to experience life through the eyes of a three- or four-year-old is one of the most rewarding opportunities of my life. They are full of wonder, energy, compassion and adventure. Each student brings their own experiences and understanding to our school to create a unique and loving family that I call my classroom.

We always try to provide the students with hands-on learning and expose them to as many aspects of life as possible.

Giving them a journey full of rich experiences is what we aim for every day.

My Project

We try to give our pre-k students a well-rounded education with rich experiences. We love exposing them to new and exciting things every day. We are asking for help so that our students can have the opportunity to plant their own flowers. We need soil, pots and seeds.

This will be an exciting way to dive into science by turning it into a cross-curricular learning experience!

This project will help my students learn the basic concepts of the plant life cycle as well as allow them to learn responsibility. This will be a new and exciting experience for almost all of the students, so we look forward to exposing them to this wonderful aspect of life.
