My Students

My students are so lovable, eager and ready to learn. Many of them come from challenging home lives. They are excited about school and searching for stability, comfort and love. They are bright explorers and have the passion to learn and thrive. Each and every one of them possess the potential for greatness. Acquiring the essential tools to teach them are crucial to my work at hand. I am looking to nurture my students to the best of my ability and possessing the correct tools that will meet their specific developmental needs is imperative.

My young geniuses know they are destined to be great if they work hard and do their very best.

They are truly an inquisitive and adventure seeking group of kids. It is my job to ensure they have the necessary educational skills to succeed. I teach a wonderful group of kids who are going to do great things in the future.

My Project

Because my students are just beginning their journey into school and education, it is extremely important that writing be emphasized. I really enjoy teaching and developing young writers and those skills need to be taught immediately. Providing my students with the correct age appropriate writing tools is so imperative. Most schools don't provide those beginner pencils and parents are not able to purchase them due to the high price. The pencils are so developmentally appropriate for 5 year olds and it helps them gain control of their fine motor skills. Writing journals are a great and successful way to document their progress with writing and it is vital that my students use them. The headphones are important for my student to be able to focus on listening comprehension and phonics lessons on the computers without outside distractions from the class. All of the items on my list will greatly help my students flourish and excel this school year!
