SPOTLIGHT: Mrs. Kotlyar

Mrs. Kotlyar and I have been spending a lot of time together as she is getting to know the behind the scenes of 3G. She is very intent on keeping our regular classroom routines in place, and also implementing her own strategies and activities which I know the children will be thrilled to learn.



This week, we were fortunate to have Mrs. Kotlyar spend a whole day with us. In some "getting to know" her activities, the children had some very interesting and important questions for Mrs. Kotlyar. In case you didn't get the full scoop at home, here were some of our favorites:


Do you have a baby at home? No

If you did have a baby, what would be your top two choices for girl names and top two choices for boy names? I need to think about that- I'll let you know!

If you could have any wild or non wild animal for a pet, what would it be? A cockapoo.

What is your favorite scariest movie of all time? I can't watch scary movies!

What is your favorite general movie of all time? Pitch Perfect (a hit with the children of course).


For your benefit in getting to know Mrs. Kotlyar (on some deeper levels), the children have prepared a poster for you to view during Open House on April 10.
