My Students

My students are incredible! I have a range of three to six year-olds. This year I have a student that is from China and learning English which has been really fun to see the progress she is making. I also have a student with down syndrome that has been in my classroom for a few years. This student is incredibly sweet and often makes me smile.

My students help me to smile every day, as I see the wonder and excitement they have for life!

I thoroughly enjoy the time I have with them!

My Project

These items will expand the creativity and arts aspect for my students. We need to replace some math and theater items, after loosing many of ours items purchased by myself, to the infestation. I have choose items that are familiar to them through characters from books. I also have picked out a few items to expand on our science areas.

We are excited to use these items to spark creativity in our classroom through the use of theater in particular!

I love to use all of the arts with students, especially at this age before they might have become inhibited. They are not afraid to show their creativity and performing is very engaging and enjoyable for them.
