My Students

Hands down, the best part of our school is our students! We are a public school with an extremely diverse population. We have 560 amazing students at our school. At our school, we are deeply committed to individualized instruction, allowing every student to reach his/her full potential! High academic and behavioral expectations are reflected in our school's core values: Be Respectful, Work Hard, Help Others, and Strive for Excellence.

Families are also engaged in the learning process.

We are confident that all students can achieve at high levels.

Kindergarten is a very busy place! I personally think that Kindergarten is the best! It is an absolutely magical place to be! There is just so much growth that goes on in one year. It's truly amazing to watch the transformation, and I am very proud to be an instrumental part of that!

There are 25 students in my classroom this year. Although I am very happy that I moved into a bigger classroom, it gets small very quickly with 25 students! I am very excited about the new school year and look forward to a wonderful year with them!

My Project

Kindergarten is a very busy place with lots of curious minds. Every once in a while, curiosity gets the best of us and we tend to explore items that we shouldn't be. This locking cabinet does more than just store items, it protects and organizes valuable classroom equipment. The best part of this storage cabinet is that it locks for security purposes. It will be the perfect place to keep items out of reach just in case those curious minds want to explore items that they shouldn't be touching. We want to make sure that each child is safe at all times. The colored cabinet will match our classroom furniture perfectly!
