About Kindergarten

In kindergarten, we focus on learning social skills (sharing, problem solving, manners, independence, following directions, developing positive self-esteem) and applying them to daily situations.  We follow the Reading Street Literacy Program and Math Expressions, which are both aligned to the Common Core State Standards.  Our science and social studies lessons are integrated within math and literacy.  

About Ms. Arndt

I grew up in the small town of Zumbrota, MN, about 2.5 hours north of De Soto, with my mother, Cindy, father, Steve, and older sister, Katie. After graduating from Zumbrota-Mazeppa High School, I moved to La Crosse, WI and attended college at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse, where I earned my degree in elementary education with a minor in early childhood.

The Coulee Region is a beautiful area, so after graduation I decided to stick around! My first teaching job after college was teaching Preschool in La Crosse. I really enjoyed teaching such a vivacious group of youngsters and feel that experience has prepared me for teaching Kindergarten. I'm excited to have joined the De Soto team and can't wait to see what the year has in store for us!
