I am an educator who is passionate about ensuring your child has a positive first experience in public education as s/he enters kindergarten. in our classroom you will see reading, writing, math and classroom management/life skills as daily focuses. I strive to instill in each child a love of books and reading, no matter what one's abilities may be! I'm a big supporter of developmentally appropriate practices and strive to provide ample opportunities for your child to excel and grow. In teaching, I implement multiple strategies that include music and movement to support our healthy bodies = healthy minds program and behavior management that utilizes Love and Logic http://www.loveandlogic.com techniques. We also do some mindfulness activities too!
My classroom goal revolves around the principle of developing a community of learners where we work and grow together. Put downs of others, bullying or disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. I believe in the spirit of Aloha and will be diligent to ensure your child leaves school each day with a happy heart!
To help your child be successful, we will need to be partners and communicate openly about any questions or concerns you may have.
I look forward to an AMAZING year as we begin our adventure in learning!
