My Students

I teach kindergartners who are fun, creative, energetic, and eager young learners! My school is a diverse place that encourages all students to be proactive leaders through learning. I desire for my students to succeed and grow in their classroom experience.

I am looking forward to giving my amazing students the chance to improve their reading and writing skills in kindergarten.

I am teaching students who qualify for ESL services, and who are all at varied levels of reading and writing abilities. The learning that will take place in my classroom will make my students better citizens and encourage a love for learning.

My Project

In our kindergarten classroom, we have many different picture books that students get to explore hands on. Some books that we have are fragile and we want to make sure that they are kept in good condition for many kindergartners to come!

This bookshelf is a great way to store books, so all readers can enjoy!

I chose this bookshelf because it is easy to access, safe and high quality. My students can easily see books that they want to read and there is plenty of room for the various titles that we will read throughout the year! We are also getting new books and we want them to be taken care of, and this bookshelf will do that!
