                    Welcome parents and children to Kindergarten at Countryside Elementary!

                I am proud to say that this will be my tenth year as a Kindergarten Teaching Assistant at Countryside. 

    Working with Mrs. Hall-Jackson’s assistant is a both a pleasure and, quite frankly, a whole lot of fun!   We are always coming up with new ideas to make each year special for our students.   I have always felt that Kindergarten is a memorable time in a child’s life and it is an honor for me to be able to love and nurture their young minds.

                A little about me:   I began working as a substitute teacher at Countryside Elementary when their doors opened in 2003.  I was a substitute teacher for five years but always felt most at home when I was in the Kindergarten classroom.  I was thrilled when the opportunity arose for me to join the staff at Countryside as a Kindergarten Teaching Assistant in 2008.  I believe every child should “reach for the stars “ when it comes to their education.  I am looking forward to partnering with Mrs. Hall-Jackson to help your child realize their full potential and embrace their uniqueness as a Kindergartner at Countryside Elementary.
