Dear Parents,             

Welcome to Kindergarten! The first year of school is always an exciting adventure for the entire family.  It is a year for learning, growing, making friends, and lots of fun too! I am looking forward to a wonderful school year with you and your child!

This will be my eleventh year at Park Elementary School and I am delighted to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher! I began at Park working with students with special needs and have spent the past eight years teaching Kindergarten. I grew up in Lonsdale, Minnesota and graduated in 2004 from Minnesota State University, Mankato, with a degree in Elementary Education. I live in Le Sueur with my husband, Craig and our three children, Carter, (7) Stella, (5) and Luke (1).

I am confident that this year will bring exciting adventures and new discoveries for your child! With the support of students and families, we will create a classroom environment that will recognize and respect individuality. To support each student’s unique needs, I will create a classroom that offers a variety of meaningful teaching styles so that each child will have the opportunity to succeed. The children will grow and learn at their own rate. I invite you to play an active role in your child’s education by talking with your child each day about their learning, reading together every night, and communicating with me.

Each day your child will bring home his/her B.E.E. (Bring Everything Every Day) folder.  Your child’s B.E.E folder will contain his/her work for the day, notes, and sometimes homework. Please check your child’s backpack daily for important letters and notes. This can be a hard habit to get started, but well worth it! Thanks in advance!! I want there to be open communication between us.   If at anytime you have a question, I will be happy to talk with you.  Feel free to write me a note, give me a call, or email me and I will try to respond as soon as possible. I want you to feel well informed throughout the year.
