WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN!!!
I am excited to say that I am your child's Kindergarten teacher!! This is my fourth year teaching Kindergarten in the Beaver Local School. I have been teaching in the district since 2008. I began my teaching career as a Special Education teacher, followed by teaching third grade and finally getting to the grade I LOVE...Kindergarten!! I received my bachelor's in Education from Youngstown State University along with my master's in Special Education.
Kindergarten is a year of growing socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Your involvement, interest, and enthusiasm will help make this a wonderful year of growth for you and your child. Take a moment to imagine the kindergarten world: letters, numbers, stories, sharing blocks, puzzles, play, paint and play-dough. Imagination and creativity are everywhere. As you talk with your child about their day and celebrate their best effort on the work they do, remember that Kindergarten is a "child's garden." Many times the process is more important than the product, and learning is accomplished by doing, touching, and experiencing.
I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child!
