My Students

My students are curious, compassionate, helpful, excitable, and enthusiastic. They come from all kinds of different backgrounds and experiences with learning. They LOVE school and each other. I want to provide a classroom that inspires my kids to learn, knowing they can become anything, no matter their circumstances! I do my best to provide each individual the learning experience he/she needs, but I need your help. I love my students, and their enthusiasm for learning! I want to provide them with hands on learning in all areas!

My Project

My students learn best by playing! Studies show that if kids play to learn they are able to apply the skill more easily in everyday life. I’m wanting to provide them with a variety of learning games that will allow them to play as they learn various literacy and mathematics-based skills. I’m excited for them to have the opportunity to apply their learning in different ways, beyond pencil and paper, and apart from technology. These word and number matching games, letter sound locks, and word building puzzles will help me provide them with these opportunities, and hopefully inspire them to love learning even more than they already do at this age.
