Welcome to Mrs. Dailey's Home Page!
Welcome to kindergarten in room 5! I'm Kathy Dailey and I've been
teaching young children for 21 years. I'm excited to start my
eleventh year here in kindergarten at Hillside. I live in Ashburn
with my husband Dave. My daughter Kaitlyn is working on her Master's
Degree in Education at Virginia Tech and my younger daughter, Megan, is a
sophomore there. Go Hokies! Your kids will hear many stories about
them, as well as our little dog, Bella.
I love teaching kindergartners because they are so open to new ideas
and are naturally excited to learn. I believe that all children have
their own gifts that they will discover and we will nurture.
Kindergarten is a time to learn to work together and to be a kind and
respectful teammate. We all have our strengths and weaknesses and we
will discover how to help each other learn and
grow. This is the beginning of a long journey in their
education, so I will work hard to ensure that they have a strong foundation of
skills, both academic and personal. We will be partners in
making that journey a success. If they leave kindergarten with a positive
attitude toward school, self-confidence, strong basic skills, and respect for
themselves & others, then I will know I have done my job.
You are a vital part of our kindergarten team. Please don't hesitate to
contact me if you have a question or a concern. We hope you are able
to come and spend some time in our classroom to see the wonderful things that
your children are doing. I appreciate all of the support that you give
I am so lucky to have Mrs. Patty
Byars as my assistant. She worked at Hope Preschool for eleven years
before coming here to Hillside. This will be her eighth year at
Hillside and she has found her home here with the kindergartners. She
loves their sweetness and sense of humor! Mrs. Byars lives in
Sterling and her daughter Leah is attending dental school in New York.
Mrs. Byars enjoys gardening, reading and baking. I am thrilled to
work with her!
We are looking forward to an amazing
year with your "little monkeys"!
