Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so excited for you to be a part of my classroom this year! I am even more thrilled to be your Kindergarten Teacher! It's going to be a great year full of new friends, new adventures, and new discoveries.
My name is Janet Holloman. I have worked in education for ten years (five years in Kindergarten and five years in First Grade!); however, this is my third year as a teacher. I graduated (right here in my hometown) from the University of Mount Olive with a BS in Early Childhood Education.
I reside just outside of Pickle Town (Mount Olive) with my husband. Together, we have five children who take up a lot of my time. We have three girls (ages 12, 10, and an infant) and two boys (ages 6 and 4). They are my greatest blessings. I enjoy reading, crafting, sitting on the beach, and eating at Chick-Fil-A.
In This Classroom:
You are cared about. I value your ideas, thoughts, and actions. You have unique talents and strengths and I can't wait for you to share them with me and your classmates.
I do ask my parents to write a letter introducing their child to me at the beginning of each year. Tell me what to expect, their fears, their dreams-- what their strengths and weaknesses are. Also, let me know your expectations for this year and what you hope for your child to accomplish by the end of the year. This helps me out tremendously in forming a good relationship with your child.
Communication is Key:
Kindergarten is a very fast paced and rigourous grade level; however, I do my very best to make learning fun through many hands on learning experiences rather than worksheets! I believe with all my heart in one simple statement-- "Home AND School: TOGETHER, we can succeed." Communication is everything in my classroom. I look forward to meeting you and building relationships with you and your child throughout the year. Please sign up on ClassTag to follow our classroom activities and receive newsletters.
