My Students

If I could sum up my preschoolers in 5 words they would be: energetic, driven, eager, supportive and engaged. At only 4 years old my students understand the importance of a supportive environment, not only do we celebrate each other wins, but we also thrive in a classroom community where "can't" isn't a part of our vocabulary.

Teaching in a low-income community many challenges have come my way, it is definitely tough to build a classroom community of high-expectations and achievements when most of my students have been told what they aren't capable of because of conditions of poverty.

With daily affirmations, words of encouragement and resources, I aim to provide my students with the keys to success. Although there is an ample amount of encouragement and affirmation in my classroom, resources are inadequate. Your support in helping change that is very appreciated!

My Project

By introducing an iPad station in my PreK classroom it will expose my students to content they would otherwise not have access to! In this "digital age" it's imperative that our children are familiar with such an important tool in our world today.

I plan on using our iPads for a variety of reasons: Listening Center - students will be able to "flip" the pages of a book with the help of audiobooks app through iTunes, Facilitate Conversation- we will use the iPads to take random pictures throughout the school day and during free time centers use those pictures for talking pieces, Science Center - set up my science center with photos that support our current topic, e.g.

leaves for Fall or seashells and marine animal images for a study of the ocean.
