Kindergarten is a big step into your child's school career. It is the beginning of homework, projects and even reports! Your child will learn problem solving in school work and in peer relationships. Your child will learn to become more independent and self-sufficient. You will see physical, academic, social and emotional growth as the year progresses. Sometimes this growth comes in big leaps and bounds and sometimes it comes in small baby steps but it comes.
As your child's teacher, I hope to help your child grow in self-confidence. I want to help them find out all they are capable of being. This does not come without bumps in the road but those bumps can be great opportunities for growth. I believe in teaching children how and where to find solutions to problems. Something as simple as "how do I write an "A"?" can be solved on his/her own by looking around the classroom and finding the answer. I help your child learn these skills through a lot of repetition and modeling of the skills and behaviors I want and expect them to learn.
Most importantly, I want your child to know that he/she is a Child of God. The fact that God loves and forgives them is one thing I want them to take to heart. God loves each of us so much He sent Jesus to die on the cross so that we may all be with Him in heaven one day. Your child will hear this Good News each day through devotions, prayer, Bible stories and weaved throughout our daily tasks.
