My Students

I teach 1st grade at a charter school where the focus is on teaching the whole child! We spend a lot of our day using flexible seating, doing brain breaks, and focusing on not only our academic learning but on our emotional, physical, and social learning as well. Squeezing all of that into one school day is a challenge, to say the least, but having the proper training, resources, can-do attitude, and know-how goes a long way!

Six- and seven-year-old children are at such an amazing age to teach because they are absorbing so much and maturing so quickly that every word truly makes a difference.

My group has such a drive to earn positive reinforcement and to prove they are ready to move to that next grade that I am constantly creating challenges to help them grow! I focus largely at the start of the school year on building a strong classroom community and talking about core values throughout the year to truly create wholesome students for our school's future.

My Project

Science for the Soul is a way to get students classroom supplies that will allow them to actually watch, touch, and experiment which are the ways science should be learned! Having these supplies will benefit students by teaching science standards and fueling engagement and curiosity that will overflow into writing, math, reading, and interests at home! So often science is put on the back burner for school districts to fund, and it becomes difficult for teachers to supply what is needed to ACTUALLY teach a hands-on and memorable science lesson. Having the proper tools will give students the opportunity to explore science the way it should be.
