About me

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! This is my second year at University Academy but my first year teaching kindergarten. Before coming to UA, I taught preschool for two years in Kansas City, KS. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Kansas City Art Institute and a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Missouri St. Louis. I am very excited to be working with your child and I am sure we will have a great year learning together.

B.E.E. Books

B.E.E. stands for bring everything everyday. The B.E.E. books will contain a daily behavior, a communication log, a R.E.D reading folder, and homework. Occasionally, any additional notices from the school such as newsletters or notices about school events will be placed in the book. If you need to send me anything, please place it in the B.E.E. book.


Homework

The first day of each week, students will receive a homework packet in their B.E.E. book. Homework is to be completed a few pages a day and is due on the last day of the week. I will not collect the homework before the last day of the week.


R.E.D Folders

Read every day (R.E.D) folders will contain your child’s reading log and a few books on their reading level. Students are required to participate in 20 minutes of reading everyday. The reading is to be documented on the reading log located in their R.E.D folder. The 20 minutes can consist of the child reading to themselves, reading to an adult, or a sibling reading to your child. Students may read books other than those placed in their R.E.D. folder.


Extra Clothes

Please send an extra set of clothing (uniform shirt, uniform pants, socks, and underpants) to be kept in your child’s locker. Accidents may happen, so in order to minimize missed learning time, it helps to be prepared.


Classroom Expectations

In kindergarten, we are building the foundation for a successful academic career. Through out the year, we will be working with your child to build their ability to self-regulate, stay on task, and persevere when things get tough. A behavior chart will be used to help students understand and regulate their behavior.

Behavior Log

Behavior logs will be located in your child’s B.E.E. book and will be updated daily.

Blue- I went above and beyond today! I was a role-model and consistently made smart choices. I stayed focused and was ready to learn. I followed all of my classroom rules.

Green- I made smart choices. I stayed focused and was ready to learn today. I followed all of my classroom rules.

Yellow- I had an okay day. I followed most of my classroom rules but I made some choices that were not great. I had to be redirected a couple of times. Consequence: Student will be moved to a safe seat. Student will lose some recess privileges.

Red- I did not make smart choices today. I had to be redirected several times throughout the day. I will make better choices tomorrow. (On the reverse side of the behavior log is a note about the choices your child made today.) Consequence: Student will visit a buddy room. Student’s parents may be called. Student may receive an office referral.


Classroom Rules

These are the five basic rules students will be expected to follow in the classroom:

  1. Follow directions the first time.

  2. Raise your hand for permission to speak or to get out of your seat.

  3. Keep your hands and feet to yourself.

  4. Be nice to each other.

  5. Make smart choices.


Please feel free to contact me by phone or email. I can be reached at school from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 pm. If I am unavailable during these times, please leave me a message with your name and number or send me an email. I will try to get back to you by the end of the day.
