Greetings Kindergarten Families!!!
Is there anything better than Kindergarten? We hope you will ask questions, explore our classroom and find it full of useful information that will get you and your child through this milestone year!
So, a little about me. I was born and raised in Chapel Hill, NC (Go TARHEELS). They say Virginia is for lovers and love is what brought me here. I will be getting married the 3rd week in September!!! (YAY) My future husband Ralph will bring 5 children to our marriage and I am a mother of 3 daughters. Yes, we will have 8 children altogether. I have a freshman and sophomore who attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have a 9-year-old who will be going to the 4thgrade this school year!!! Needless to say, I have gone through kindergarten 3 times with my own children so; as a parent, I understand your concerns, challenges and maybe even fears first hand. I promise we will get through all of it together.
While, I’ve been in education for 20 years, this is my 6th year teaching kindergarten and my 1st year teaching at Anthony Burns Elementary. I am so happy and proud to be apart of this team of Dragons! I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Early Childhood Education and a Master’s degree in Education with a Specialization in Early Childhood Education. There simply isn't anything better than kindergarten!
It is exciting to see my student's progress throughout the year and I ALWAYS encourage parent involvement. Please feel free to email me with any questions and/or concerns. I’m looking forward to a rewarding a productive school year!!
