My Students

My Kindergarten students are eager learners who attend school in a high-poverty STEM school district in Texas. Over 85% of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. All of my students receive free breakfast. My students are sweet, happy children who are excited about learning. Kindergarten begins the foundation of learning academic and social skills which will carry the students successfully through their academic years. I want to provide resources to help my students have a successful year in Kindergarten!

My Project

I would love to bring the World's Smallest Elf on the Shelf to our Kindergarten classroom this holiday season! I envision him keeping on eye out for great behavior and excellent thinking and learning from my students each day. During the month of December, our Elf on the Shelf will leave various holiday goodies and treats, such as Holiday Activity Books, Holiday Pez Dispensers, and Christmas Socks.

My Kindergarten students will be so excited to be at school each day to see what our Elf has left for them!

My classroom is an engaging, fun, memorable, special, and exciting place to learn! My Kindergarten students deserve it!
