Teaching Kindergarten is my passion. I can't think of any grade I would rather teach and I definitely would not want to leave the classroom to be an administrator because my heart is with the students I work with each and every day. I feel I was born to be a Kindergarten teacher.
Many of my students are from low-income households and they don't have access to resources that many other children are fortunate enough to have.
I am always looking for new resources to bring into my classroom to set my students up for success.
Despite the daily challenges they face, my Kindergarten students love to work, love to wiggle, love to read, love to build their independence, love to learn new things, and love to come to school. They make me smile every day and they inspire me to be the best teacher I can be. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with such amazing kids and it is my goal to inspire them to work hard and achieve greatness!
Class Dojo is an amazing app that increases communication between scholars, their parents and their teachers. Parents are able to log on to their account and see their child's profile, which includes their personalized emoji and their points accumulated.
Students are now able to take photos and videos of their work and post them to their own "Student Story." They are even able to type their own captions!
Parents can view the photos and are able to "like" the pictures and make comments on them.
You know that student that couldn't write her first name? Well now she can and we can take a picture of it and send it to her Mom! You know the student that had trouble adding? Now he can do it and we can show Dad right away! Personal best on our spelling test? We take a photo of them with their test so families can see how they did before they even bring the test home!
My goal is for my scholars to use this new iPad to post photographs of their work to their Student Stories so parents can stay updated throughout the day. Now they can experience their children's accomplishments in the moment!This encourages parents to stay involved in their child's education and to get excited about their progress and achievement! The parent feedback has been amazing:
B's Mom says, "I love class dojo. Great to be connected with you Ms M and to see all of the accomplishments on a daily basis!"
K's Mom says, "I really love class dojo what a great asset for me to know what's going in K's kindergarten class and it is a great tool to keep in contact with her teacher."
