My Students

My classroom is a an exciting and fun environment full of diverse children! We are children with special needs and some up and coming Einsteins! We live in a moderately low income level area, and we have several ESL students, including Spanish speaking students. This diversity makes our classroom interesting and exciting! Students are kind and helpful to one another as they bond and span the language and differences that exist. There is a bounty of tolerance, gentleness, and love that puts me in awe. I am grateful and happy to be a part of their learning experience.

My Project

Our kindergarten is using the newest and greatest approaches to learning in order to personalize education for each student. We are currently using a blended learning combined with personalized learning to help each child reach their own educational capacity. We need help providing the last aspect of our approach, flexible seating. This seating is statistically proven to help students be more engaged and focused in class, by meeting the needs of students who need to wiggle, or stand, or sit , or lay on their tummies. We are a rare kindergarten team to try these learning approaches with such young children, and we are eager to show the world just how smart these little guys are!
