My Students

I teach 21 curious, creative, and energetic Kindergartens each day! It is my purpose to teach them to love school and become lifelong learners! I teach at an enrichment school that believes all students can learn when given the right tools. I know all students learn differently, so I incorporate art and movement in my classroom regularly to aid our math, reading, and writing lessons. Through the use of technology, music, and small group teaching I am able to effectively teach all of my students, and meet each one on his or her current level. This enables all of my students to feel successful and to show growth and progress! As a Kindergarten teacher, I am thrilled to share with you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of my kindergarten students! Thank you for supporting my classroom!!

My Project

Do you remember walking into your elementary classroom and having the teacher tell you to sit down and do your morning work paper quietly? Well that is all changing in my classroom. I have recently decided to start using "Good Morning" tubs every morning with my kindergarten students. I know " Good Morning" tubs will be a fantastic opportunity for students to collaborate with peers, engage in rich student driven discussions, and promote: creativity, engineering, spatial reasoning, problem solving, visualization, and much more!

Adding creative STEM materials to class morning time will help fill missing gaps and provide enrichment for all students.

These exciting materials include Magna-Tiles, Pattern Play, EMIDO and Squigz!
