My Project

I have an opportunity this year to work with some of the most loving and hardworking students. They are eager to learn and keep me on my toes. They help me appreciate the small things in life every morning, something as simple as a smile and fist bump. My students are very special to me, and they will always have a special place in my heart. They have been taught and learned that failure is not an option. And if by any chance they do fail or make a mistake, they can always try again. Sometimes I get so tickled in my classroom because my students will remind me if I forget or make a mistake, they will tell me it is okay.

My students have worked hard all year long.

They have faced many challenges and obstacles doing this pandemic. However, they were determined to complete every task with accuracy. The reading and math manipulatives will help me ensure they receive the best quality education possible as they enter a new milestone in their lives, the 1st grade. And because their parents have played a vital role in their learning this year. I wanted to show their mothers/guardians some love and appreciation by creating Mother’s Day cards, photos, and certificates for Mother’s Day. As an educator and a mother, I wanted to show my students that I care for and appreciate them by celebrating them as their kindergarten year ends. The snacks would be a blessing to the students. It would show my love and appreciation for the students working hard in this pandemic and never giving up.
