My Students

Our classroom is our home away from home. My students are a diverse community of learners and appreciate each other for their unique personalities.

If you walked into our room you will see smiling faces and active participation.

You will also hear students sharing their deep thinking and inquiring minds. If you catch us during a break, you will probably see us singing and dancing- mostly likely to the Baby Shark song.

We pride ourselves for creating a safe environment where everyone feels welcomed, and can reach their highest potential.

My Project

It is not only important to have a safe and orderly environment for learning, it is also important to create a space that is inviting and pleasant.

I would love for children to walk into our classroom and already feel at home with the sight of the couch, and more importantly have a place where they can curl up on and dive deep into their studies!

A couch in our classroom can provide a space for cozy and relaxed collaboration. However, a couch in our classroom can also provide a place for students to stretch out and enjoy a great book, just like they would at home.
