My Students

Our school is a Title I Montessori school in inner-city Indianapolis, with a diverse population of learners. Being a Preschool/Kindergarten teacher, I have the fortunate opportunity to guide children on their journey of becoming Montessori learners. My students come from a variety of backgrounds, which allows us to form a unique classroom community. This variety of backgrounds encourages understanding, compassion, and empathy amongst students. While their backgrounds are all different, the children share a common love for learning.

"The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence." -Dr. Maria Montessori

As a Montessori teacher, I work to make sure each child's individual needs are met. Meeting these needs involve much preparation and planning. The goal of this preparation is to encourage independence and confidence.

My Project

Scholastic magazines give my students the ability to engage in seasonal science or socials studies topics with an exciting nonfiction and colorful, real-world photos. They will learn reading can be informative and fun. Each month will discuss a new topic that relates to events happening during that month.

Help my students build knowledge in a comprehensive and engaging way!

Scholastic magazines build fundamental reading skills like concepts of print, sight words, and phonics. The magazines include important issues, posters, and interactive online features. Each child will be able to receive their own magazine and follow along in whole group. They will be able to take this magazine home and discuss the topic with their parents. This creates a school and home relationship.
