a group of Prenda students painting on a kitchen table

April Desmond

My 3rd year is guiding K-2 students. I started, so my kids could be a part of this microschool idea.

But I stay because I love ❤️ when kids figure it out. To see their faces when it clicks.

We love imagination station, baking, mystery science, and definitely painting! We have small classrooms, so I have time to hear everyone's input and love helping one-on-one! Practice make progress, and we love to see our progress! So glad to continue in my prenda journey along with my students. Thank you for sharing your kids with me so we could all grow!
