My Students

It’s difficult to describe my class in two paragraphs. So many characters, so many personalities, so many wonderful little minds learning more and more each day, striving to read, write, and learn their numbers.

Although a few of these students face some hardships at home, they come to school and are eager to learn.

With young fives being the start of their schooling experience, I strive to make it a positive and nurturing one. As my students will tell you, I am educating our future doctors, police officers, coffee shop owners, presidents of the United States, and teachers. My classroom is full of potential and hope.

My Project

Felt story boards will allow my students to actively retell stories that we read. Stories such as "There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly", "Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes","Goldie locks and the Three Bears", and other classics.

Storytelling is a unique way for students to develop an understanding, respect and appreciation for other cultures, and can promote a positive attitude to people from different lands, races and religions.

Children have an innate love of stories. Stories create magic and a sense of wonder at the world. Stories teach us about life, about ourselves and about others.
