WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN!

I am Ms Jaxie.

Kindergarten is your child's first steps into their educational career.  I believe that every child has the chance to achieve any goal, and this is where it all begins! I have been working in early education for 10 years, 6 of them here as a part of the Mount Pleasant family where I have taught both Kindergarten and First grade.
I provide a rigorous academic schedule, but provide plenty of fun within! We all leave the classroom as readers and writers!

I am the Kindergarten STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) teacher, so an emphasis is put on incorporating science within all our curriculum.  But we also will have opportunities to enjoy the VAPA and ALAS programs throughout the year.

I rely a lot on the support of the families, providing lots of ways for them to help, in and out of the classroom.  In Kindergarten, the year is broken up into themes. We have take home projects based on those themes, as well as many thematic centers based on our curriculum.  We welcome our families to make these group activities as well as scheduled opportunities to come in to the classroom and help.  We also schedule several field trips which provide our families and friends the chance to support our Kindergarten program!
