My Students

My Kindergarten students are full of creativity, humor, stories and questions! They have a wide range of strengths and needs and come from diverse backgrounds. Many students have vast school experience while others have not attended any type of school or care outside the home. Regardless of their schooling background, all of my students LOVE to learn. We strive to make learning fun with hands-on activities, games and working cooperatively. These students are extremely enthusiastic learners and I enjoy finding ways to keep them engaged and challenged.

Our school is a wonderful neighborhood school located in Portland, Oregon.

We have the benefit of having very involved parents and families. We have a dedicated staff that truly cares about the students at our school. We have strong school values and work hard to live out these values in our every day school life. We work hard to be safe, be kind, be responsible and build community. I feel so fortunate to work in this amazing community.

My Project

Kindergarten is often a student's first formal experience with school. For that reason, it holds a very special, important place in the hearts and minds of young learners. The connections and learning that are happening in a kindergarten classroom are truly magical. My students love nothing more than playing games, reading stories and play acting together. And, if you have ever spent time in a kindergarten classroom then you know how important THE RUG is.

With 27 students in our small classroom, space is at a premium.

We spend a large amount of time learning together on our classroom rug. We start our day singing and sharing special news, we read stories together, track the weather and solve math equations. Needless to say, this rug provides the setting for some pretty amazing learning opportunities. I am seeking a large, colorful classroom rug that has a spot for each student in our class to have their very own home. Thank you for considering this very important project. It will make a difference in our everyday lives.
