    My Students

    Thank you for considering my application. I'm so excited to be back to teaching Kindergarten in September, but there's really nothing for the children to play with in the classroom at this time. I've taken advice from colleagues and have a wish list that includes hands on experiential learning with a focus on STEM to foster an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at a young age. We can't wait to play in K... we just need a few things. Thank you!

    How will this project impact them?

    Although I have taught Kindergarten before (for 13 years), it was in a different district and I no longer have the items we once used. I am so excited to return to teaching Kindergarten. I have a renewed energy and enthusiasm partnered with a lot of experience. I am very interested in developing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math activities in my Kindergarten classroom. I envision a lively classroom where my students engage in a variety of activities, learning at their own pace and with a focus on their own interests. I recall Kinders being exceptionally curious and I look forward to fostering that sense of wonderment through hands on Science centres, dramatic play and block play. We really have nothing at this point in this room besides a bin of wooden blocks and a wooden kitchen. Thank you for considering my application to enhance the learning for my students.
