Shalonda Bailey

 Dear Kindergarten Parents,

Welcome to University Academy. My name is Ms. Bailey and this is my eighth year teaching at University Academy, three years  teaching transitional kindergarten and this will be my fifth year teaching in kindergarten.  I began my teaching career as a first-grade teacher in Oklahoma.  I taught first grade for five years and prekindergarten for a year. I have a heart for learning, which is the reason I choose education as a profession.   As your child’s teacher, I want to make his or her classroom environment a pleasant one filled with rich experiences, challenging projects, high achievements and lasting friendships.  To make this year a success, I believe it is particularly important to develop and maintain a year of classroom involvement with you.

  I truly appreciate your support and cooperation concerning the education of your child.  I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child as we work together this year.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by sending a note in your child’s F.I.S.H book, through the school’s main number 412-5900, or email


Your Child’s Teacher,
Ms. Bailey
