My Students

I teach Kindergartners who love to learn and love school! Kindergarten students work hard and do their best each and everyday. Our school is Title 1 eligible and face many challenges in a single school year. With this being said, my job is to make their first year of school safe, exciting, fun, engaging, and full of learning.

My Kindergartners are eager to learn!

My goal as a teacher is to give them the resources they need to be successful! My students love hands on learning! We are up and moving often and learning through singing, hand motions, and many types of manipulatives! We also love to use technology has much as possible! I cannot wait to see the future of these kids!

My Project

With all of the great resources from Scholastic Books, these young scholars will be able to experience the love of learning by holding vibrant books in their hands. Exploring the world around them by reading about nonfiction topics that are crucial for students to know and understand.

Eager learners need opportunities to explore the world in the classroom!

These nonfiction books and newsletters will provide students with a vast amount of information that connects to their background knowledge, helping them retain important information! They are like little sponges, and it is my job to give them the materials they need to soak up as much information as possible, in a fun and memorable way.
