Welcome to the great experience of Kindergarten! I'm looking forward to a great year with your children. This is my 28th year teaching and starting my 12th year at Chairville (with a brief stop at Kirby's Mill Kindergarten). I have taught infants through third grade over the years, and I absolutely adore my time in Kindergarten most of all. This year you will see your children blossom as independent and adventurous young learners. They will become thinkers, readers, writers, singers, artists, and explorers. Our classroom philosophy is two-fold...1) Always choose kind! and 2) Just try your very best! Together as a team, this will be a fantastic year to never forget.
