My Students

I work with a great group of preschool students who come from varying ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our students come in every morning enthusiastic and ready to learn. They are a very energetic, talkative, and fun-loving group who love to ask questions. Our school is located in a low-income community. We strive to provide a safe learning environment for our students.

Hands-on learning is what our energetic students need to succeed.

We are trying to provide more of this learning style to prepare our students for higher grades to come. Our goal is to provide our students with a preschool learning experience that they will carry with them for years to come.

My Project

We are working on updating some of the materials in all the different areas in our classroom. We want to keep our students engaged and make sure they have the materials to enjoy hands-on learning. We have a great group of 19 students in our classroom this year that are excited to learn.

We love exploring in our science, sensory and math areas!

We will love to learn about living things with the activity tins, use one-on-one correspondence with the touch and match math cards and puzzles and add new materials to our light table and sensory areas for the kids to explore.
