My Students

Our classroom has diverse and unique personalities that are eager to learn. Our minds are growing and always wondering about the world around us. Our minds are full of questions about our world.

We come from different parts of the world and are each equally special!

We live in a high-poverty neighborhood, may struggle with language barriers, and gaps in our learning but we will not let that stop us. We love to read, experience new adventures, and expand our learning.

My Project

Having these tools will help each child build social-emotional skills. Social-emotional skills help with team building, fine motor skills, self-exploration, and responsibility of belongings.

Young children are always exploring and wondering about their world.

So, why not start now!

Each morning before our day starts, we will practice how to use these materials, work with other people, and take responsibility for our belongings. Having these children start at an early age starts the process of responsibility and the importance of being proud of the materials you own. Children love using their hands and exploring their world using an all-in approach, and I would love to help ignite that passion.
