Education is a collaboration of teacher, student, and parents.
Together we can help your child succeed!
Through cooperative learning, inquiry based teaching, guided discovery, and hands on experiences; your child will thrive both academically and socially.
My teaching is a combination of cognitive, kinesthetic, and discovery based techniques.
It is my priority to know my students and accommodate their individual learning needs accordingly.
I teach and live by the following notion; not every child learns the same way, but ALL children can learn!
Positive reinforcement is used to support good behavior. I use a “Five Star” program. Students are encouraged to complete each day with 5 stars! At the end of the day, each student who has stayed on a “five star” will receive a sticker or stamp on their hand. This allows you to stay informed about your child’s daily behavior.
5 Stars = A great Day
4 Stars = You’ve been warned
3 Stars = Lose recess time
2 Stars = Note or phone call home
1 Star= Administrators need to be involved
You can access homework assignments on
the Kindergarten Homework website:
If you do not have access to a computer/internet, our computer lab will be open 30 minutes before school (7:15-7:45 AM) & 30 minutes after school (2:10-2:45 PM). Please be sure to get a visitor’s pass in the office.
but would like to help, please just check
the box that you would be willing to have
prep work sent home
and would be willing to make copies for
our class, please let me know.
Our classrooms contain the state-of-the-art Mimio-boards which allow our teachers to better present Standards-based lessons; all students, K-6, utilize their student responders which provide instant feedback; and, teachers use their document cameras to provide better visuals for learning.
Clothing and Personal Items - Sweaters, rainwear, sweatshirts and jackets have an unfortunate habit of looking alike, so please LABEL all of your child’s items with his/her name.
Consistent school attendance is very important. New concepts and skills are introduced/reviewed daily.
If your child must miss a day of school, please call the schoolat 951-739-7120 .
Illness - If your child is not feeling well in the morning or has had a fever or vomited within the last 24 hours, he or she should not come to school. Your cooperation on this matter will help prevent colds and illnesses from spreading to other children. If your child comes to school sick or becomes sick during the day we will call you to come and pick him/her up.
Please email me with your name, child’s name and number to best reach you at:
I am looking forward to an amazing school year with some truly fantastic kiddos.
Thank you for your time tonight!
Have a wonderful evening!
