My Students

Our class is full of excited and energetic kindergarten students! For most students, this year is their first experience in a structured, learning environment. Besides learning the academics, we learn how to cooperate with each other and socialize. My goal is to provide them with a safe, positive and exciting environment where they develop a love for learning!

We love to explore, work together, and learn through play!

STEAM is a great way to incorporate all of our favorite subjects: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math.

My Project

In Kindergarten we are learning how to respect others' personal space. Many of us are visual learners and this rug will help us define spaces when seated on the floor. We spend a lot of time working on the floor with different games, technology, reading books and working with others.

These hands-on STEM activities give students creative freedom to build with their imagination!

Students love to see their ideas come to life. We were able to borrow a "Cozmo" from someone and we had so much fun learning! I can't wait to see what my students create with these fun STEM materials.
