My name is Ms. Quiros and I will have the pleasure to be your child’s Kindergarten this year. I’ve been teaching for 15 years and this will be my 4th year as Kindergarten teacher at Southwest. It is my belief that a child's success is based on a cooperative parent/teacher relationship. I look forward to working with you throughout the year.
I hope you and your child enjoyed the summer and that you are ready to embark on an important milestone in your child's life. Kindergarten is a year of growing socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Your involvement, interest, and enthusiasm will help make this a wonderful year of success and growth for your child.
Take a moment to imagine the kindergarten world: letters, numbers, reading stories, projects, science experiments, sharing blocks, puzzles, play, paint, play-dough etc. Imagination and creativity are everywhere. As you talk with your child about their day and celebrate their best effort on the work they do. Many times the process is more important than the product, and learning is accomplished by doing, touching, and experiencing.
At this early stage of learning, it is important to set routines in your child's life. Try to set aside time each day to discuss what your child did in school.
I feel that my greatest contribution so far in education has been serving my students to the best of my ability and being an advocate for their education.
Thank you for entrusting your child to me.
