Ms. Kesler

I am sure that you are as excited as I am about the new school year!  I earned an undergraduate degree in English from the University of Virginia, a Master's degree in Education from the College of William & Mary, and an Endorsement in Gifted Education from the University of Mary Washington.  My teaching philosophy has been developed from many years of teaching as a regular classroom teacher and as a Gifted Resource teacher.  Children have great curiosity about their world.  As a Gifted Resource teacher, I embrace the opportunity to nurture that curiosity in each of my students.  When children enter my room, I want them to experience a sense of wonder, to be filled with questions and curiosity, and I want to instill in them a desire to discover the answers to those questions.  I want them to learn to think rather than memorize, to question rather than just answer, and to express curiosity rather than conformity.

I believe that your children will reach outstanding heights in fulfilling their potential when they, you, the classroom teacher, and I work together.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
