My Students

I teach a class of 22 amazing kindergartners who are eager to learn and deserve endless resources, experiences, and opportunities. They come from different backgrounds, have a wealth of experiences, and have a lot to contribute to our diverse learning community. They are eager for knowledge and engaging opportunities to learn.

I have a very diverse population at my school and in my classroom, with at least 50% learning English as their second language, and I teach at the most diverse school in the nation!

The children delight in activities that engage their minds and bodies, and they look forward to what each day of the exciting kindergarten world brings them! It is my job to inspire and motivate them in a variety of ways in which I reach the whole child.

My Project

As a dedicated teacher, I am always looking for ways to support my pivotal role in supporting a student’s academic, mental, physical, social, emotional and cognitive development through online professional development. It is one way that I can learn a lot for free! I need reliable, wireless headphones like the AirPods Pro to access my online professional development.

I love listening to Ted Talks, Educational videos, demos of instructional strategies on YouTube, audiobooks, Social Media live videos from educators, podcasts, teacher blog videos, and so much more all for free!

I have learned more from online professional development than from my entire 1.5 year teaching credential program!

I am also always in need of printer ink. I print tons of resources, curriculum, games, projects, etc. from all of my go-to professional development sites and my ink runs out often! My printer is thirsty and close to dehydration!

I am excited about enhancing my personal educational/professional development experience with reliable wireless headphones such as the AirPods and replenished ink for my new printer.
