My Students

I am excited to begin the new school year with a classroom full of excited 4 - 6 year old children all bursting with energy and ready to learn! I have lots of exciting new activities planned and expect they'll be up for the fun learning that's in store!

As education has evolved, so to have the needed supplies!

Unfortunately with higher costs for curriculum materials, building maintenance and lower funding from the state,we can't always afford the extra's that are essential in preparing our kids for the future. As a veteran educator, I still look for new and exciting ways to make learning more engaging and fun! Singing, Dancing and playing, (and some milk and cookies once in a while) are all integral parts of my active classroom! Join me in adding to the fun this school year!

My Project

As I head back into my classroom to set up for an exciting new school year, I always spend a few weeks contemplating what new items I can add to my repertoire of teaching materials. As a teacher for over 30 years, I continue to find myself searching for new innovative ways to excite my young, energetic little learners!

Kindergarten students are always full of energy and enthusiasm and I want my classroom to reflect that as I always look for ways to make learning engaging and fun!

New Chromebooks would be just the ticket to get them excited about the new adventures ahead!
