Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten!

Bungalow 7 - Ms. Lisa

Dear Room 7 Parents,

Welcome to Tule Elk’s TK program in Bungalow 7!  I am so excited to be your child’s FIRST elementary school teacher.  Tule Elk Park is a wonderful school and community, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach your child this year.

Transitional Kindergarten (also known as TK) is an amazing time for growth in every area.  In TK, we will focus on social emotional development, exploring materials to develop language and mathematical skills, and building fundamental skills to transition into kindergarten.

A Few Reminders:

  • Class starts promptly at 8:30 and ends  at 2:30 pm. Attendance and being on-time for drop-off and pick-up are very important.

  • A light breakfast will be served daily at 9:00 am.

  • A healthy family-style lunch will also be provided daily.


  • Weather children know it or not, they thrive best when they have a routine and things are predictable.  I highly recommend taking time to have a set morning, after school, and evening routine.

Supplies Needed for School:

  • A set of extra clothes in a large Ziplock bag.  Please label the bag with their name. This will be left in our classroom.

  • A water bottle labeled with child’s name.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at  or leave me a message at the number below.  I will return your call or email at my earliest convenience.

I look forward to having a sweet school year with you and your child!

Rise up this mornin'
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying', (this is my message to you)

Singing' don't worry 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing' don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright

-Bob Marley


I'm Lisa, a mom of three living in the Outer Sunset of San Francisco.  When I'm not volunteering or substitute teaching in SFUSD (#37928), managing sports teams or organizing events like Sayawan, Tule Elk Park's Spring Fling, or Boo by the Beach for our community, I also provide part time and drop in child-care.  Surf's up and no child care?  Bring your little ones by!  School is closed, but you have to work?  See my reviews if you are interested. I am a CA credentialed teacher with 8 years of high school English experience and 4 years of infant, pre-K and elementary experience.  My goal is to provide a loving, highly enriching, and affordable childcare environment for families in the Outer Sunset while caring for my similarly aged children.  Email me or visit me on social media to set up a visit.

Peace and Love,
