Welcome to Kindergarten!

Our mission is to educate and inspire each child that walks into the classroom. Our main focus is on developing a passion for learning through curiosity and exploration. Through a warm and supportive environment, we create a culture based on self-confidence, high-expectations, and self-worth.  We model empathy and love for our Seton family, and though all this, we end up with a community of young, strong learners dedicated to personal development and success.

Belief’s About Teaching and Learning
  • A classroom where mistakes are treated as opportunities for exploration.
  • A classroom where students are taught about different perspectives.
  • A classroom where there is a clear classroom management plan with clear positive expectations.
  • I believe it is important to have a positive atmosphere to allow children to feel as if they are a part of the learning process.
  • An emphasis on compassion and respect, with a can-do learning environment.
  • I believe in using differentiated instruction. Providing the students with more than one way of learning to understand that there is more than one way to find a solution.
  • I believe in building a positive student-teacher relationship.
  • I believe as a teacher you have the opportunity to challenge students and their abilities. In return, they can have different approaches to new things, and be able to use their critical thinking to solve matters in different ways.
  • I belief as a teacher I have the ability to demonstrate confidence and teaching children to have the same confidence
