Mrs. Laura Guess
I would like to welcome you and your child to Sonoraville Elementary School and to Pre-K! I am very excited about working with your Pre-K child and look forward to getting to know all of you this year! My goal for this year is to instill a love of school in all of the children, in hopes of making their first year of school a happy growing experience. Your child will grow both educationally and socially this year, and I think it will be fun for all of us! I’m very excited that your child’s first experience at school will be here, where we truly believe that there is “Strength in Every Student.”
I am a graduate of Dalton State College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and an ESOL endorsement. I have a T-4 certificate, and I am highly qualified to teach your child. This will be my eighth year in the classroom and my fifth year as a lead teacher. I served as a paraprofessional for two years in Kindergarten at Calhoun Primary School and one year teaching science as a specials area class to K-2 students. I feel that my previous experience will enable me to prepare your child for kindergarten and beyond; I hope that each child will enter kindergarten feeling successful and ready to move on.
I’m very fortunate to have an experienced and capable paraprofessional working with me this year. Jamie Hornbrook has several years of experience in Pre-K, and worked prior to that with children in one of our local church preschool programs. She will be an asset to our classroom and a vital part of the students’ days at school.
If you ever have a question or concern and need to contact me, please feel free to either use our REMIND app, e-mail me, or call the school at 706-879-5302. I will contact you by the end of the day. For many of you this is the first time you’ve had a child in school, and I want you to feel free to contact me at any time. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for sharing your child with me!
