Welcome to Ms. Truthstone's Webpage

 

     As a morning Kindergarten teacher, each child is received in kindness, secure expectations, and respect in a whole group environment. This creates a safe and affirming foundation in which learning and growing towards becoming a successful student and citizen of the world can grow.  In partnership with parents and community the child is given a reflection of who they are as a student and as a person who is a lifelong learner.

     As afternoon RTI support reading coach and ELL English language coach, I meet with students in small groups focusing on reading skills or English language skills. In all contexts of learning, the classroom is a safe and productive space in which learning with respect, kindness, and curiosity is applied.

     I welcome parent and community volunteers to help with our busy kindergarteners since it is often a challenge for our 5 year olds to share the teacher. As with all education, their success feeds the future success for our society.
