Welcome to my page, I am a Pre-kindergarten teacher at Hallettsville Elementary School. I have been teaching for 9 years, and this is my 6th year at HES. I was born and raised in Hallettsville, and I love that I have the opportunity to work and raise my children in the same school district I grew up in. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child throughout the school year, and will be happy to help or assist you in any ways that I can. If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me through the office or my email.

October 19, 2016 Unity Day (Kids Against Bullying)  Wear Orange
website: KidsAgainstBullying.org
The students met our principal, Mr. Harris and the assistant principal, Mrs. Janak.  They spoke to our students about our Brahma pledge, and making good choices in school and letting the students know they are here for them whenever they need them.   The students did a great job listening and paying attention.   
This week we learned our last sight words we will be sending home in pre-k.  We practiced our sight words today by reading the words off the cups and stacking them.   Please continue to practice them at home and continuing throughout the summer, this will only help and ensure success in kindergarten.   Thanks !
The students did a great job recalling facts they learned about the sun as we learned about the solar system this past week.    They  dictated and wrote the sentences and we put the information on a chart.  They also enjoyed getting to watercolor paint their own sun.  
Field Day is approaching quickly and will be on Friday, May 20th.  This will be a fun day for students to enjoy games, activities and a Brahma Mudder obstacle course.  If you have not done so please make sure you turn in your order form for your child's shirt, and if you wish to volunteer to help out or make a donation.  Thanks! 
We used heavy cream and shook it in a mason jar to make butter the students enjoyed putting it on their homemade bread like the character in the story The Little Red Hen.  
The students had a great time at the Jersey Barnyard!  They had the chance to see and learn about many different types of animals.  The students also learned more about Jersey cows and how they milk the cows with machines and the students even had the chance to milk a cow by hand.  The students enjoyed feeding and petting the animals and had a fun and educational experience!
