How many people can say that every day they make a difference in the lives of many students, differences that will shape the adults that those kids will become.
This is a reflection of my career as a Kindergarten Teacher.
We are giving students their very first experience of school.
If they enjoy Kindergarten and feel successful and good about themselves, that will progress with them to the next grade levels.
Helped children develop self-confidence, develop social skills, learn problem solving skills, and to help children feel safe in a friendly, nurturing environment.
Assisted students with a love for learning and build a spirit of cooperation in the classroom.
Developed social, emotional, creative, physical and cognitive needs of each individual student.
Provided each child the opportunity to socialize and learn important skills, such as respect, good citizenship and trustworthiness.
Helped build self-esteem and stress that every child is a valuable and capable person.
Develop a unique and personalized curriculum.
Extensive daily interaction with faculty, staff, parents and students.
