My Students

I am the proud teacher of twenty-six kindergarteners who love hands-on learning! Anything that is science, mathematics or technology based is right up their alley.

I strive to give my students many different opportunities to use their critical thinking skills as well as their imagination!

I am constantly looking for new ideas to engage my students with limited funds for the extras things that brings learning alive. With your support, I can help my students continue to show excitement for learning!

Thanks in advance!

My Project

Our classroom project is based around the famous quote by Benjamin Franklin. “Tell me and I forget. Teach me I remember. Involve me and I learn.” I am looking for hands-on STEM materials to achieve this goal. Our classroom needs are to provide my students with a variety of STEM materials to incorporate during math, science and creative play time.

These hands-on materials will allow my students to think more deeply, problem solve independently, work together as a team all while inspiring their imagination!

The Zoobs, magnetic builders, straw builders and K’NEX engineering sets will allow my students timeless opportunities to use their spatial skills, fine tune their fine motor abilities and visual skills, encourage thinking and reasoning and build self confidence all while having fun!
