Welcome!! I love that I teach Kindergarten here at Paramount Elementary! Kindergarten is such a big year in your child's life---a year of growth, learning, and discovery! Be prepared to watch your little one let go of your hand and come into our classroom to gain loads of confidence, independence, and lots of new skills. We will explore letters, sounds--reading & writing, as well as numbers, counting--and all the great parts of math! We will get messy with paint and markers and play-dough, and learn all about our world in science, art, and social studies. We will learn how to share, use manners, and build great character as we build a community of learners. I am excited to teach your child this year!!
On a personal note...My husband, Terry, and I are proud parents to 4 wonderful kiddos--Madelyn (8th grade), Tayson (6th grade), Braylon (4th grade), and Maya (2nd grade)! I love to spend time with my wild crew swimming, riding bikes, and snuggling with a good book. I absolutely love the Denver Broncos, Celine Dion, re-runs of Friends, and playing pinochle! Life is GOOD!
