My Students

Our students come for more than education! They come for peer social experiences, meals, and positive adult interactions, too! School is a safe and caring place for many who don't have that experience at home. We pride ourselves on keeping our population steady. Our school is located in an economically disadvantaged neighborhood and is a historical part of this community. The students who attend are from generations of families that have attended the same school. I often hear, "My grandmother was in Jane Doe's class." or "My mom went here, too!"

The little ones are so impressionable at the tender age of 3 & 4!

We are working hard to keep our students moving in the right direction. We moved from an "D' school to a "C" school. Our population is diverse, so diverse we teach Dual-Language classes and Spanish is as special just like physical education. Many don't have the stability every child deserves.

My Project

Things in school should have changed fast than they are. Today's children are bored by yesterday's teaching practices. The Snap-Dinos, Sensory Marble Mazes and Nuts About Counting! activities will give them the tools for discovery and new interest.

Just imagine how boring school can be without the freedom to explore and create!

We all learn better when it interests us and by doing it ourselves. These resources will give my little ones the ability to enjoy learning and provide opportunities for them to be creative while engaged. Help me bring our school up-to-date with teaching resources that capture attention and support the next generation!
