Big Box Storage presents the January Teacher of the Month!

Big Box Storage presents the Teacher of the Month!

Congratulations Ms. Alcaraz from Gage Elementary School in San Diego. Big Box Storage appreciates your commitment to the students in your charge and are thrilled to recognize your well deserved efforts.

From the teacher:

My students are fun, energetic, and filled with wiggles! We are beginning the year with 20 4-year-olds and now 5 year-olds! This is amazing, but also really challenging. We are developing our classroom community focusing on respect, personal space, and social skills.

My kiddos are eager to learn how to write in Spanish from their ‘Maestra’! They have yet to explore the world and they are excited to start their educational career with me. My students are clever, creative, and witty! They have huge smiles on their faces every morning (after they cry about their parents leaving them). As a brand new TK classroom, we continue to lack resources to help us develop our learning.

As the year goes on, my students are learning more vocabulary. The use of vocabulary is further extended in my classroom through social centers and play time. In order to help them build their vocabulary and expand their imagination, students need a concrete object to further their play. Having [learning tools] will help them gain proficiency in Spanish. With your help, students will be able to continue learning without knowing! It won’t feel like top-down teaching, but rather like play-time because well they will be learning through play.

Learning through play is such an important process in the education of young children. We would be more than happy to help with your request for learning tools to teach Spanish to the students of your classroom. Big Box Storage is fully invested in the future of our following generations and is proud to sponsor fine educators such as yourself.
