Teaching Kindergarten has been a dream! Imagine 18 young, smiling faces of children who are eager to see you every morning. That is my reality every day, and I am so thankful for my kids. Each student in my classroom is different. They all come from different home lives, have different skill sets, and they each have a unique personality that makes them who they are.
My students are diverse, but they share in their desire and eagerness to learn and grow.
I desire to provide them with every opportunity I can to help them achieve high-quality learning in an environment that encourages them to be who they were created to be!
As many of you know, Tennessee schools are closed for the remainder of the school year. This closure was expected, but it still comes as a shock. The time we have with our students is precious and invaluable. The hugs, laughter, learning, and love that takes place in a classroom cannot be recreated through online learning.
But that is no reason not to celebrate the huge accomplishment of finishing kindergarten!
I believe that every grade level is vastly important and I am biased when I say that kindergarten is the most important grade, but the completion of kindergarten is a big deal. Even though I cannot celebrate my students in person and have their celebration of learning with them, I would still like to be able to send them a gift. I thought the book I Knew You Could would be a very fitting book. We read I Think I Can at the beginning of this school year and talked about how there are difficult things that we will face this year in our class, but we will overcome. My little friends, as well as many in the world, have overcome so much this year and I want to celebrate them! Please help me be able to provide this amazing gift for my students. I know they would be so grateful and so would I!
