Welcome to Kindergarten!
For many of you this might be your first experience as a Kindergarten parent or it might be your fifth. I am so excited to take this journey with your family as your child’s first teacher at MATES. 

I grew up here in Thousand Oaks and was lucky enough to student teach here at MATES while earning my credential from California State University, Channel Islands. I earned my Masters Degree in Teaching from Grand Canyon University. While I was student teaching here I knew this was a very special school. The relationships that form here between students, parents and staff are unlike any other. I am excited to be starting my sixth year in Kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year.  
My husband and I have a daughter, Katherine, that will be two in March. When I’m not at school (ha!) I enjoy being with my family, crafting, spending time outdoors, and taking pictures. I’m truly discovering first hand how fast kids develop and I look forward to partnering with you this school year as we watch these kiddos blossom!

This week’s letter is vowel i. Please have your child bring in an item that has the short i sound either at the beginning or in the middle of the word (ex: igloo, invitation, ship, etc.).
