Hello My Name Is...

Ronda Spencer

Welcome
to 
Kindergarten

 

I am very excited to teach kindergarten for the 2019 – 2020 school year here at T. S. Morris.  This is my first year teaching kindergarten and my second year at T. S. Morris.  I have wanted to teach kindergarten for many years and am enjoying this exciting opportunity!  My previous teaching experiences range from first grade to high school, in general education and special education.  My certifications include elementary education, special education (early childhood through high school), and education administration. 

I enjoy teaching kindergarten through second grades because this is when children are learning the foundational skills for reading and math.  The rest of their educational years will be built on these foundational skills.  Some of my favorite programs to use include the Phonics Dance by Virginia (Ginny) Dowd (http://www.phonicsdance.com ), the Heggerty Phonemic Awareness program (https://www.heggerty.org ), and Counting Collections ( https://mathforlove.com/lesson/counting-collections/ ).
 

I look forward to getting to know my students, their families, and watching them grow, learn, and become readers this year!  One of my favorite moments as an educator is seeing the excitement, pride, and joy when a child reads his or her first book.

Parents and family, please check your child's folder each night.  It is very important that your child practices the weekly skills each night.  These skills are essential to becoming successful readers and developing a high level of number sense.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
