Welcome to Our ClassWelcome to Kindergarten at Springfield Elementary! I am excited to learning and growing with your child this year as their kindergarten teacher. This is sure to be an exciting time for you as your child begins their official journey to becoming a life-long learner. This year I will spend time encouraging positive social interactions among the students, helping them to become more independent during the school year, and nurturing a classroom of respectful and caring children. You will see your child blossom into an early reader and writer in addition to building many math skills. I enjoy having fun in the classroom, but also know the importance of creating a structured and organized learning environment. Lastly, I think it is important expose your child to different music styles to help them remember important things!
Meet the Teacher
Welcome! My name is Kristen Thomas I was born and raised in Michigan City.
I graduated from Indiana University- Purude University Indianapolis (IUPUI).
This is my first year teaching and I am excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Springfield Elementary.
Growing up in a family full of educators I knew at a very young age that an education is the of most important things to obtain. Both of my parents were educators and they always taught me that once you've obtain an education no one can take that from you. As a young child I watched how my parents influenced other peoples lives in the community through teaching, coaching, aInd mentoring. Seeing them connect to people of all ages really inspired me to want to do the same! I can't wait to have your child in my classroom their education is really important to me. We will learn by exploring and doing a lot of hands on actitivies! I am excited for this school year!
