    Kindergarten Teacher

    Nelson Elementary


  • Welcome to one of the most incredible years your child will have in his/her school career! Kindergarten is a time of:

    • New beginnings
    • Making friends
    • Learning lots of new things each and every day
    Kindergarteners develop fundamental work habits, appropriate social behavior, problem solving and decision making skills, and of course academic skills.  I am looking forward to making your child's learning experience a fun and exciting one, and to instill a love of learning that will last throughout their years of schooling. 
    At Home Support 
    Families can help at home by:  
    • Reading to and with your child daily.
    • Practicing sight words daily.
    • Encouraging your child to write and draw.
    • Practicing math daily.
    • Reviewing work that your child brings home.


    Your child can use Classlink to access all the district paid online resources.  Need help?  Here are step by step directions... or use my Classlink Tutorial Video (this is not necessary if using a district-provided Chromebook).
