My Students

Our community has many different socioeconomic backgrounds and I serve students with very different levels in the academic areas of Kindergarten. I currently serve 9 boys and 5 girls. We have a high-energy classroom most days.

All kids are curious and eager to learn.

It is our job as educators to ensure their love for learning any way we can! I am a very dedicated teacher who seeks out resources to help each child succeed in all areas. The goals for students are set high in education, and I do my best to ensure success in my classroom.

My Project

With these science activities in the classroom, the students will be able to engage their brains in a fun and exciting way! These science activities will allow the students to think outside the box on how to assemble, figure out and manipulate different projects. Adding the sensory play experiences will allow those students to take a step back and explore science in a whole new way. With the addition of the exercise balls, used as flexible seating in our science area, will allow the students to wiggle while they learn and explore. Engaging the students in these activities will help the students gain an understanding and knowledge of core curriculum in a hands-on way.
