About The Teacher
Hello Cielo Families!
I am so happy to get to know you! My name is Michelle Brown. This is my 11th year teaching kindergarten and I love what I do. I enjoy fostering a love of learning in children and helping them to understand that they, too, can be successful in school.
I grew up in Arizona and have been here for the majority of my life. I have briefly lived in South Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Maryland (D.C. area). I am married and have two boys, ages 6 and 8. We are local and live within the district. I have a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix with an Early Childhood Endorsement. I have taught, pre-K Montessori, 1st-2nd grade gifted, & 3rd grade, but by far I have loved kindergarten the most.
We will spend the year learning the following: acceptance of others, how to follow directions, how to play with our peers including how to interact with those that are easy and difficult to get along with, colors, shapes, numbers, counting to 100, adding, subtracting, letters, sounds, sight words, to read books together, to read books independently, how to verbalize our feelings as well as how to verbalize our understanding of the lessons, vocabulary, spelling, handwriting, and writing words; sentences; & paragraphs.
To do so, we will: sing songs, use manipulatives (hands-on materials), draw & color, use technology including computers and a Smartboard, act out our learning, use whiteboards, be exposed to a variety of books and stories from many genres, experience science and social studies topics, go on field trips, participate in fundraisers, and learn how to be a part of a true community and school family.
I cannot wait to meet your child and to embark on this wonderful adventure of learning with them! I will truly love them as my own. Kindergarten is a wonderful time and we will cherish so many moments together! I look forward to an amazing school year with your family! Please do not hesitate to contact me. My email address is email@example.com My school number is 480-541-2508. Talk with you soon!
I will provide you with a supply list on Meet the Teacher Night, which is July 29th.
