Hello to all our students and families!
Welcome to Eisenhower Elementary. I'm very excited about meeting you and welcoming you to our school. Before coming into our room, I want you to know a little more about me. I grew up just down the road in Manhattan, Kansas and graduated from Kansas State University. After college, I taught first grade in Gardner, KS and then married my husband and moved with the military for several years. For the past four years I taught first grade at Eisenhower. In December 2020, I achieved my goal of becoming a reading specialist. I now have the pleasure of sharing my love of reading and math with students in Power Lab.
Power Lab is a place where students come to improve their skills in reading and math. We refer to it as Camp I CAN. The mindset of our room is to guide students in believing in their abilities. We do this by connecting learning to student interests, creating goal focused leaders, and connecting school and home.
Camp I CAN is a place where everyone is welcome. We recognize cultures and traditions of our students. Each student receives a Funds of Knowledge sheet to complete. This is our opportunity to learn about your family's customs, favorite activities and invite you to contribute to our classroom. I look forward to what your child can bring to our classroom!
Eisenhower elementary is full of students and staff that recognize the affects of transitions, deployments and family separation. As a military wife of twelve years and mom to four military kids, I understand the ups and downs of moving and meeting new friends for your child. We are here to provide an environment that guides your child to not only soar in academics, but in leadership and life skills as well.
I look forward to meeting all of you.
It's a great day to be an IKE Eagle!
