My Students

I have the honor and privilege of serving low income children through the Head Start Program. These children are my heroes.

When given the opportunity, and the proper material I know these student will shine bright.

They have so much eagerness at this age to explore and learn.

You'll never know these students could be our next famous artist, doctors, scientist, lawyers and the list can go on and on. Nothing is impossible when given the opportunity. These children are our future.

My Project

Dramatic play encourages children to put themselves in someone else shoes. Such role-playing helps them to improve their ability to do this in real life. They learn important social skills, such as empathy. Language development.

I want to incorporate not just any dolls, but multi-ethnic dolls into my dramatic play center.

I want to be able to use the dolls as a way to show my students that we are might look a little different, but we still treat all with the same respect.

Along with the babies and the accessories to go with them the children will not only learn to take care of them but will also know that it is alright to look and speak different.
