I am now an official kindergarten teacher at Pinebrook Elementary! I was hired about 2 weeks before school started which was crazy! I had two weeks packed full of meetings, trainings, and hours and hours of setting up my new classroom. Pinebrook is a very large school with 1,200 students and 3 principals! It is currently the largest school in the district and is highly regarded in the community with a 10/10 rating on greatschools.com. School started on Tuesday, September 4th. Here are some pictures of me on my first day....
Back to school night was this past week. It is always such a relief when it is over! Nothing is more overwhelming than being confronted by a big room full of parents who have questions and concerns about their children and are wondering how I am planning on helping them. But I have a great group of parents who are very supportive and kind. I also have an amazing full time assistant with me named Risa, who I absolutely adore and don't know what I would do without!
Here are some pictures from back to school night!
So here is to a great year full of ABC's and 1, 2, 3's!
Since I only attended 2 weeks of kindergarten myself when I was young,
it is my first time in kindergarten just like my students!
Hopefully we can work together to have a great year!
