When I think of the first semester of kindergarten, the most prominent word that comes to mind is “growth”. Over these last four months, I have seen every single student make tremendous progress. Whether they have finally learned all the letters of the alphabet, were able to count to 30 for the first time, or were able to understand and explain the different types of weather, each student has achieved academic success and continues to do so every day. The effort and determination each of my students has shown indicates that they have that love of learning and are well on their way to becoming life-long learners. I have never been more proud of a class and I hope I can continue to help them achieve all year long.
