Teacher Feature - Kathryn Kern

WHY I TEACH

I love working with young children and teaching because I am able to make a difference in their lives. It is amazing to watch kindergarten students grow and transform. It is my hope as a teacher to empower students to have the desire to become life-long learners.

Outside of work I love to spend time with my family. My two children Cooper and Kaleigh keep me very busy! As a family we enjoy traveling, camping, and hunting. When I'm not hanging out with my family I love to read and go to concerts.

Let's Keep Everyone Healthy and Our School Open

We are so happy to be able to give parents the choice for in person instruction for their children. Working together we can ensure that schools stay open. We are asking every family to please do the following:

1. Screen your child for symptoms each morning before sending them to school.

2. Keep your child home if they are not feeling well - sick children should not be at school regardless of the cause of the illness.

3. Keep the lines of communication with the school open - we all want what is best for your child and working together we can accomplish that!

Home Activity

Create a Responsibility Race at home! Make sure everyone has 3-5 chores to accomplish and set a timer to see who can do them the fastest/most creatively/most thoroughly. Establish a prize for the winner and make it into a weekly game!
