As we get started this year, I will soon get to know your students. So, I thought I'd give you the opportunity to learn more about me as a person and as an educator. My name is Maryn Feyereisen, and with two years' experience as an elementary educator, I have grown to love the process of learning. As humans, we never stop learning and growing, and I can't wait to experience both of these with your students throughout this year. Kindness and cooperation are key traits of becoming successful, and as such, I take every opportunity possible to incorporate these themes into our learning community.
My personal view as an educator is that education is all about instilling a love for learning in students and giving students plenty of hands-on opportunities to practice the process of learning and growth. Because that's what learning is--it's not always about the end product; it is about the process and the journey and who we become on the way to reaching the end goal.
Since I value the process of learning and have a passion for learning myself, I hope to discover what your students' passions and talents are. Hopefully, as these gifts surface, we can all celebrate and express our individual and collective successes as a classroom community! I am excited to start this year and to watch how your students' growth and development in kindergarten will create a solid foundation for future learning!
