Welcome to KB
Kindergarten with Ms. Burke
Your child's first experience with school will be an amazing one!
The best way to stay up to date with what is happening in KB is to follow me on Twitter. I post photos and information about the learning that is taking place nearly every day. This will give you great tidbits to ask your child about at dinnertime! It will also keep you informed so that you can connect the learning at school to home. Through Twitter, you can private message me as well. Simply go to Twitter.com and create a free account. Then find my handle BurkeEdventures and request to follow me. This is a protected account so only people I approve will be able to access it. If I do not approve you, it may mean that I do not recognize a connection between your handle and your child's last name. If that is the case, simply email me and I will approve you to the Twitter account. If you don't want to miss any tweets, you may need to allow notifications on your device.
With over 10 years teaching experience, specialized certifications in Orton Gillingham multi-sensory approach to reading and Brain Gym, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge in the best practices for teaching young children. Additionally, my educational background includes the study of developmental stages, whole brain teaching, and brain-based learning theories in depth. Utilizing a teaching approach that focuses on multi-sensory experiences in KB, exposes children to new concepts in a rich variety of ways fostering questioning techniques and encouraging innovative thinking. Formerly, as the owner of a The Little Gym franchise, I provided classes in motor skill development to young learners and continue to weave kinesthetic activities into our daily routines. Typically, I spend my summers at Willow Lake Day Camp assisting with adventure opportunities for children.
