Welcome to Kindergarten! I am looking forward to a great year with your child. I grew up right here in Sumter County, attending Bushnell Elementary, South Sumter Middle and High School. I went on to Pasco-Hernando State College to get my AA and then to the University of Central Florida to get my B.S. in Elementary Education. I have two children that go to school right here at LPES as well. I am in my second year of teaching, first year with Sumter County Schools.
As teachers, we work hard to help each child grow and learn in a way that they best understand. It is very important that you work with your child on completeing homework and making sure they are ready for school.
In my classroom, students will work together as well as in groups and independently to master material. I believe in using collaborative pairs to help students engage in what they are learning and to come up with their own ideas and questions. We also use "growth mindsets" meaning mistakes are ok, they are proof that you are trying. In our classroom we are a family and kindness matters.
Curriculum: Students will work in areas of reading and language arts, as well as math, science, and social studies. We will have lab, P.E., and recess daily, and students will go to music every Monday. Grading information can be found in the student handbook.
