My Students

My students, ages three to five and a half years old, are part of an inclusive pre-kindergarten environment. They live in a multicultural city, and for this reason they are very diverse. They are diverse not only in their cultures and ethnic backgrounds, but also in their physical, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional learning abilities. Our school is part of a Title I district where at least 75% of students qualify for free or reduced-price meals.

My students' love for learning always amazes me.

They are curious and eager to learn new ideas through play-based, multi-sensory, hands-on activities. As a teacher, I am constantly striving to provide new materials and experiences that will allow them to grow in all areas of development. My ultimate goal is to provide a solid educational foundation and instill in them a lifetime love for learning.

My Project

According to research, children are more likely to feel they can be themselves and have a sense of belonging when their classroom environment is like their homes. Feeling safe, secure and valued boosts their self-esteem, and motivates students to learn, develop strong trusting relationships, and grow up with respect for themselves, others, and life.

This soft and attractive mini living room set will allow my young students to feel more at home and, as a result, encourage them to grow in all areas of their development.

Using this furniture, I will be able to create a rich and inviting place for my students to relax and engage in dramatic play. Through dramatic play, the children will be able to develop, learn and discover new things about the world around them. They will be able to engage in creative and critical thinking and imitate and make up different situations and scenarios using their experiences and background knowledge. This will enhance their thinking, language, creativity, and social and problem-solving skills. The learning possibilities are absolutely endless!
