My Students

I will get a new crop of Kinders in the Fall and I absolutely can't wait to meet them. A few of them are siblings of other kinders I have worked with in the past and I am looking forward to seeing their families again on a regular basis and reconnecting with them.

I teach in a general education classroom but I also have students in my class who receive a variety of special education supports and/or come to my room for push in services from their social communications class.

This is one of my favorite things about the school I work at! I believe that all of the students benefit from a learning environment in which all ability levels are respected. I also teach a curriculum that celebrates and supports English Language learning student's academic needs and their cultures.

My Project

I will use these books to support a curriculum that teaches kindness and appropriate social skills with my students. Students will participate in integrated arts activities that will help them learn about social justice and inclusion.

We will read the literature throughout the school year.

Afterward, we will be using drama, graphic arts, and music to extend the lessons to help with understanding and show what they have learned.

I want students to be able to use technology and apps to create a project that can be presented school-wide or possibly to parents. This would help with ​family engagement in my classroom.
