My Students

A look into our kindergarten classroom during the day will make any visitor smile! My 25 eager learners are such a busy group - they love to learn and try new things! Each of them is full of creative and original ideas that lead our instruction in so many diverse directions. The funny things they say give me dinner-table conversation each and every night.

My students are curious, kind, and helpful members of our school family.

They yearn for exciting and memorable learning experiences, and I want to give this to them each and every day!

I teach many kids who come from low socioeconomic families; many of them are being raised by a struggling single parent or grandparent. It is important to me that kindergarten gives these children a place to experience amazing things, to learn by doing, and to feel a sense of wonder.

My Project

Learning through play creates opportunities for children to use their imagination and creativity to explore the skills they need for reading and math. I want to use these bright, playful sand and water resources to engage my little learners in the alphabet and counting.

My students will fish for letters, dig for numbers, and catch colorful bubbles to learn sounds.

Many children experience the wonder and benefits of sand and water play in preschool. However, I teach numerous children who never went to preschool. I want to give my children the opportunity to learn these basic reading and math skills through exploration. I cannot wait to see them working cooperatively and building their social skills as they fish, dig, and scoop at these new sand and water learning stations!
