About the Teacher

Hi and welcome to Kindergarten! I am excited to have your children this year. This is my fifth year teaching Kindergarten at Regina Elementary. I enjoy working with young children and watching as they grow and blossom in the early years! They are so curious and imaginative, it's never a dull day with them! I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Iowa in Elementary Education with specializations in Reading and Mathematics. I was born and raised in Iowa City. In my free time I enjoy being outside, hiking with my black labs Bear and Mia, fishing, kayaking, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and family.

Mission for the Class

The kindergarten experience will provide an educationally stimulating, secure and positive environment which will enhance intellectual, emotional, physical, and social growth of all students. Each student will learn self-discipline and appropriate school behaviors with a great emphasis on responsibility and a commitment to lifelong learning. Teachers, parents and students will collaborate to best meet the needs of each child.

The students will be immersed in an environment rich in print, language, literature, math and science experiences. Integrated throughout each component of the curriculum is an appreciation of God. The ultimate outcome for students is that they acquire and maintain excitement about learning, and look forward to continuing the learning process with a sense of wonder and anticipation.
