Meet the Teacher!

Hi! My name is Ms. Latimer and I am excited to be teaching my second year in kindergarten! I was born and raised in LaVergne and grew up attending Rutherford County Schools. I graduated with my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 2015. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and attending football games in Neyland Stadium (GO VOLS!).

This week!

The theme for this week is bugs.

Our new sight word for this week is who.

We will be focusing on how the illustrations and words in a text match each other during literacy.

This week in math, we will be studying length! We will practice comparing the lengths/heights of objects, using the terms longer/taller and shorter.
