My Students

My preschool students come from a small town and bring with them a variety of backgrounds. They bring diversity to our classroom to help us learn tolerance and acceptance. They work together to help each other learn and have become a tight-knit family.

My preschool students are full of life and energy.

They have a passion to learn and a will to succeed. These four year-olds are creative thinkers, hard workers, and passionate leaders. Every day they come to school looking for new things to learn and new ways to lead.

My Project

Preschool students love to learn about the world around them. As their teacher, I find it to be my personal mission to allow them to explore and learn about their world. In our classroom, we are going to be learning about the solar system, dinosaurs, and other types of animals. I would love to provide models, examples, and items they can touch to help them discover the world around them.

I want to foster a love for inquiry.

I want student to be inquisitive about lots of topics including dinosaurs, space, and animals they don't see on a regular basis. It is difficult for students to understand the solar system without providing models for them to see and manipulate. Teaching about dinosaurs wouldn't be complete without talking about their extinction and the ability to learn about them through their fossils. I want my students to pretend to be archeologists and "dig" for dinosaur bones. I want them to be able to use scientific tools (magnifying glasses and tweezers) to help in their study of our different science topics.
