Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer. When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal--to fly--Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. But when her contraption doesn't fl y but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose inisists that Rosie's contraption was a raging success. You can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.

I have been teaching since 1998. I have experience teaching Pre-K, Kindergarten, First, and Third grade. My passion is teaching Pre-K students, because they are like sponges who soak up information and knowledge. As a Pre-K teacher, I have the incredible opportunity to watch my four/five year old students undergo an amazing transformation. Students that enter school unable to recognize a single letter, color, number or shape but are quickly transformed into wonderfully print-literate and mathematical conversationalists.

My students are eager Pre-Kindergarteners. My Pre-K students are part of a Title 1 school, with the majority qualifying for free or reduced lunch and who are English Language Learners, with Spanish being their home language.
