My Students

Our children are unique, special, and eager to learn but come from backgrounds that are less fortunate to get safe and quality education if it wasn't for me, us and our program. Our children and their families live below the poverty level. The are presented with challenges everyday. Many of our children have severe needs that can't be met at home alone. We have children with developmental delays, speech delays, and some with disabilities or disorders beyond their control. Our neighborhood supports many of the children in our classroom. Our school wants to close the achievement gap. I want to help every child I teach in one way or another.

My Project

Children will learn the connections to the real world and how these concepts relate to their actual lives. The Pump & Play station will make learning meaningful by helping children share ideas and personal experiences that are a part of their everyday lives. Children will be able to expand their thinking and talk about them: what does it look like, what does it feel like and so on. This Play station helps children focus on their understanding and learning. Children will begin to link concepts and activities to one another, children will be able to share how they are unique.
