Happy Days Ahead!

To the parents of my Kindergarten students

Introduction

Hello Parents, I want to take this time to say thank you for an amazing school year thus far. I can not believe that the school year is almost over! I have enjoyed having your child in my class and enjoyed the pleasure of getting to know all the parents as well. I have a passion for teaching and that was the main reason I choose to get my degree in Education. I love teaching PreK because you can still be a kid while teaching and the students are learning. I will continue to work hard with your child so they can finish the school year with a Bang!
