Mrs. Carol Schiefer
I believe that all children can learn if given the right tools. Our classroom will strive to be a place where all children will have the opportunity to show their individual strengths and build upon their unique differences. I believe that education and learning should be fun, exciting, and challenging. If young children develop a love for learning at an early age, that love will continue to grow as they do.
Through the use of project-based learning, hands-on activities, technology, cooperative learning, and collaborative teaching I will do my part to encourage and motivate each child to achieve at their highest level and develop into life-long learners. I know that education is a partnership between home, school, and community. I am available at any time for parent conferences, concerns, or questions. Through working together we can make kindergarten an enjoyable and challenging experience.
