Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Ms. Kathryn Adkins and I am excited to be your child's Kindergarten Teacher! I am in my second year at Anne E. Moncure Elementary, but definitely not new to teaching. I moved here from Big Sky Country, a.k.a. Montana, in late June of 2017. I've been teaching and have been in the education field, including administration, for 22 years. I have taught many different grade levels including Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grades and was Principal in a 4th-6th grade building. I have also been an Instructional Coach and data guru for PK-3rd Grade as well as Jr. High. It is a great honor to teach your child, so please know I will go above and beyond for every member of my classroom to ensure they are receiving the best education possible and that they feel they are a valuable member of our classroom community!
On an extra personal note, I have two children, Gavin (17), who attends Nashua High School (Go Porcupines!) and Hadynn (14), who attends Brooke Point High School (Go Black Hawks!). They are wanting you to know that I have high expectations and that I expect all of my students to follow directions promptly and be respectful to all people. My daughter says, "if they do all of those things, it'll be a great year, Mom!"
I can't agree more with my daughter's quote. It will be a great year and yes, I do have high expectations. I also expect all of my students to follow directions promptly and most importantly, I completely need my students to treat all people with dignity and respect and have fun while learning!!
