Personal Belief Statement

Starting the Three-Year-Old Program and transitioning into a kindergarten teacher at Holy Cross has been such an honor.  As a graduate of Holy Cross, I am blessed to be able to come back and teach the little ones.  They are incredibly bright for such a young age, and it is wonderful to see their minds transform as they learn new things.  They love coming to school every day and they always have a big smile on their face when they enter the classroom. Five to Six years old is such a crucial time for brain development, and these students are constantly growing.  Every day they work on their fine motor skills, gross motor skills, cognitive skills, phonemic awareness, body awareness, and social skills. There is never a dull moment with these children, and I think that is the reason why I love it so much!  Holy Cross is a fantastic school, and now being able to teach here just really makes this school a second home for me.  I look forward to seeing the students and I grow with the school throughout the years.
