My Students

Kindergarten is the springboard into a students education. My students are special because for many this is their first educational setting. Every child deserves the best education that is available to them.

I teach in a high poverty school in Pennsylvania, with a high percentage of students coming from a low socioeconomically backgrounds.

Imagine being a new student, in a new environment, separated from your family for the first time, this is the reality for most of the students in my classroom. I want their first educational experience to be extraordinary!

My Project

The tools that are selected for our class will allow students an interactive and fun alternative for writing, learning, and mastering their letters, numbers, and sight words. Kindergarten is the beginning of their educational journey and I want them to come to school excited to learn!

Play-doh will allow my students to not only make letters, numbers, and sight words, but it will also help to strengthen their pencil grasp as they are learning and having fun!

Whiteboard makers also allow another sensory while learning how to write and learn. I believe that students should have a multitude of learning experiences to help them exceed their potential.
