Welcome to Kindergarten!

I firmly believe in using the Responsive Classroom approach to education.  Responsive Classroom helps to build a strong classroom community through daily morning meetings, sharing, making rules together, playing games and other community building activities.  This philosophy of teaching helps children feel safe, understood, valued, and respected.  I believe that children reach their greatest cognitive and social growth when they learn to care for themselves, each other, and the school environment.  An essential goal of Responsive Classroom teaching includes the integration of academic and social learning time throughout the school day.
