I bring over twenty years of experience working with children from Pre-kindergarten to 3rd grade in a Catholic setting. I myself am a product of Catholic education. I attended St. Margaret Mary’s Parish School and received my graduate and post-graduate degrees from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas and Ursuline College in Pepper Pike, Ohio, respectively.
As the Kindergarten teacher, one of my primary objectives will be to instill in the children a strong reading foundation that includes not only phonemic awareness and word attack skills, but also a love of books and the enthusiasm and desire to read.
I also strive to bring mathematics to the children in an easily understandable, concrete approach that emphasizes strong number sense as the springboard for the more abstract concepts.
Anchoring all instruction in my classroom will be our Catholic faith. Throughout our school year, the children will be given many opportunities to further develop and share their love for God. I feel very blessed to teach in a school that places Catholic values as the center focus of a child’s education.
I look forward to collaborating with all the parents to bring each of these goals to fruition.
