My Students

Our early childhood school is now in its 12th year serving the community. In our PreK class, that means over 180 students have come and gone from this classroom. Along with that, many other students have called our room home for enrichment classes, after-school programs, and summer camp.

Families send their precious children to our class every day, for us to help them take those first steps towards accomplishing great feats.

Children make this room their home for however long they stay and miss it dearly when they move on. It's something we take pride in, and we hope to continue doing what we love to do and that nurtures their love of learning.

I've been teaching, at my first and current school, for seven years. No matter who enters through that door, they are part of our school family. I hope to provide them with the absolute best education we can offer.

My Project

A gruffalo! Why, didn't you know? He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws, And terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.

They're the tales of Julia Donaldson with characters so vivid and fun, we hope to get her books, her books by the ton.

The stories are wild, the kind our kids love. There are so many stories that we want to read more of.

From Gruffalo, to Stick Man, to Room on the Broom, these stories will be great in our small pre-K room.

There's Zog, there's High Way Rat, and Snail and the Whale, there's so many to read about, we don't want our quest to fail!

As we've requested, a ton of books to fill our cozy reading nooks!

They'll keep us entertained, learning and never feeling the blues. So we hope that you'll fund our book project on
