My Students

My kinders are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mathematicians, writers, readers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and teachers.

They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their lifelong education.

Many of the students in my school are being raised in low-income households and receive a free daily breakfast and lunch. With limited school supplies, it's difficult to teach fun and creatively. Despite these setbacks, I am hoping to inspire my students so that they continue on a path of academia and constant learning.

My Project

Do you remember the first time someone read you a book? The first time you picked up a book? The first time you finished a book on your own? The first time you reread a book just because you loved it so much? The first time you discovered a love of reading?

Please help me create an inviting and exciting space for reader's workshop!

I have requested books that will inspire my students to become avid readers. The chairs will provide flexible seating for my students during reader's workshop, while the fidgets will help my students stay focused. The dry erase pocket sleeves will be used during guided reading to highlight important words in their new books!
