Welcome to Kindergarten!  My name is Kayren Saunders and this will be my 27 year teaching. I have taught second grade (13 yrs), fifth grade (1yr) and kindergarten (13 yrs). Kindergarten is my absolute favorite!  I love this age and their excitement for learning!!

 I have beautiful 21 year old twins. Heather graduated in 3 years, Magna Cum Laude, from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond, VA majoring in Fashion Merchandising and Interior Design. Hunter is a senior at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA majoring in Global Affairs and National Security with early acceptance to GM Grad School. I have a beautiful, 14 year young and rather sassy, chocolate lab named Buddie. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, boating, paddle boarding, skiing and being outside.

I truly believe the first year of school lays the foundation for the educational road ahead.  I hope to make this year a fun, loving and memorable learning experience for your child! I look forward to meeting and getting to know your child and family.My mission is for each child to develop at their own pace; a sense of community, independence and confidence through sharing, learning and teamwork in our classroom.
