My Students

Walking into our classroom, you experience a wealth of culture, background, and language. Our students learn from, teach, and accept each other for all of their amazing strengths they have to offer. We welcome you into our day filled with love and laughter.

Our students are filled with energy and curiosity and are looking forward to harnessing that to be their best selves.

My students need the tools to make them successful in the classroom and to be excited to learn, grow, and continue to solve the problems they may face.

My Project

Kindergarten is a wonderful time for learning! We learn letters, colors, numbers, empathy and - importantly - how to read! Having books that are at appropriate levels for readers allows them to learn without frustration and to fall in love with reading! We are looking to get our own class set of leveled readers to use at school and at home to fall in love with reading.

When students learn at their instructional level they are able to grow quickly as readers!

Having books readily available to use that are at levels A-F will allow for a variety of readers throughout the year to be enjoying books day in and day out. Because they will belong to our classroom the students will be able to take them home to practice with their family as well. It would truly change the way we read each and every day!
