About me

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I came to University Academy in the fall of 2016 and I have been teaching kindergarten since 2017. 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 the month, 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 check the homework every Friday and initial that I have checked. At the beginning of the next month, I will place the completed homework in the BEE book and add the new month's homework. You may then keep the previous month's homework at home.

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

 

Extra Masks
Your child must wear a mask or face shield at all times when they are in the building. If you choose to have your child wear a mask instead of a face shield, you may want to have a second mask available in their backpack in case the first one becomes dirty or wet. 

 

Water Bottle 
During the day, your child will be able to get a drink from their personal water bottle. The school no longer has drinking fountains but instead has water bottle refill stations. Please make sure the water bottle has a locking top or screw cap so that it does not leak in the classroom.

 

Please make sure to label your child's belongings with their names. Children often loose personal items so it would be helpful for their masks, water bottles, and clothing to be labeled. If you choose to label your child's clothing, please write their name on the tag so that it is easy to find.


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.
