My Students

Many of the children that come to my classroom have never attended school before. Being a child's first teacher is an extremely rewarding job!

All of the students in my class are 4 and 5 years old and come from low-income families.

In Pre-K we learn so much more than how to count and write our ABC's. The students learn social skills, how to be a good friend, how to be independent, and how to walk in a line; all necessary life-long skills!

My Project

Children demonstrate a clear readiness to engage in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning early in life. And, just as with language and literacy, STEM education should start early in order to maximize its benefits and effectiveness. STEM learning allows for hands-on learning which is a great way for our youngest students to use critical thinking skills and in turn persevere through a project until it is just right! It’s been proven time and time again that students who have an interest in what they are learning will retain the content better than that of something that doesn’t interest them. These STEM materials will provide just that, hands-on materials! With these materials, my students will be able to create their very own objects to go along with nursery rhymes.
