My Students

Our school's population consists of culturally diverse students with a range of learning strengths and educational backgrounds. Many of my students are bilingual and some are even trilingual. For many, English is not their first language. All students in our school receive free lunch.

Each morning I am happy to see my students enter our classroom with smiles on their faces, excited to learn!

My students are naturally inquisitive, attentive and motivated to learn when they have the right materials and engaging learning experiences. My classroom is filled with gifted artists, creative writers, avid readers, brilliant mathematicians and skillful builders, just to name a few of their developing talents. Help us provide them with the materials and experiences to further unlock their greatest potential.

My Project

Our pre-K curriculum introduces research. My students are currently researching animals and habitats. So far, their research has included reading a variety of informational texts and websites, watching videos, analyzing photos, and asking questions.

My students are empowered through research.

They are learning that their questions and wonderings are worthwhile and they're brilliant learners capable of finding and understanding the information they need.

Our city provides an amazing resource in the Franklin Park Zoo. A trip to the zoo is an opportunity for my little researchers to deepen their study of animals and habitats. My students will learn how the zoo staff care for animals and recreate important aspects of animals' natural habitats.
