Kindergartners-                               

     Welcome to Kindergarten!  It is a privilege to be your kindergarten teacher for this year and have the opportunity to help you learn and grow.  Kindergarten will be a wonderful year!  From learning how to count up to a hundred, to learning to read simple books, there is a lot that we will teach you this year.  It will  be a great journey filled with challenges, but also great memories.  It may not always be easy, but in the end it will all be worth it as you develop the necessary skills to allow you to read and write on your own, as well as to add, and subtract.   I hope you are ready for a wonderful and fun year full of numbers, letters, words and more!    
    

Kindergarten Parents-
Welcome to O'Connor, and thank you for all that you have done and continue to do to help your child have a wonderful start to the school year.  We greatly appreciated all of your help and support you have given your children throughout the years and  look forward to meeting you and your child.  It makes a tremendous difference in your child's learning as you take the time to sit down and help your child practice their skills.  It is amazing to see the growth that each child makes in kindergarten from the beginning to the end and that is in part due to the support of parents like you.  Thank you again and we look forward to soon working with, teaching, and helping your child progress each day!
  

*Parents, thank you for all that you do in working with your child at home and helping your child learn.  It really makes a huge difference in a child's learning when they receive help and support in their schooling at home.  If you ever have any questions about your child or their education please feel free to call me.

Biography
This will be my tenth year teaching at O'Connor Elementary.  At O'Connor I have had the privilege of teaching Young Learners Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and 1st grade.  I have also taught at Sousa Elementary School and Taft Elementary School.  I cherish being a kindergarten teacher, and instilling in each child the love of learning.  It is astounding to see the amount of growth each child has made by the end of the year!  As for my own education, I attended and graduated from Arizona State University with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education.  Over the years, I have taken many hours of professional development in order to be prepared to meet each child's needs.
