My Students

My students are resilient, self-motivated, excited and eager learners! I love teaching kindergarten. It provides the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

These students view our school as a second home.

They come to school to learn and be loved on! I strive to make our classroom as welcoming as possible.

I am so proud to be the teacher in a school with a very large percentage of English language learners and students who qualify for free/reduced lunch. These students will rise up and achieve any goals they set!

My Project

My students will love using these alphabet stamps to build their foundational reading skills. At the beginning of the year students can use them to practice letter identification and to spell their names. Later students can use them for word building practice!

I want my students to be excited about our centers!

These manipulatives would really make the process of learning about letter names, letter formations, and letter sounds engaging.

The Launch and Learn games will also give them practice identifying rhyming words, which can be increasingly difficult for my high percentage of ESL learners. They will be so excited to play these fun games!
