Welcome to Ms. Goodwin's 2018-19 Kindergarten 'Explorers' class! I have fun and exciting things planned this year with our K Explorers. Some of the things we will be doing include such activities as creating Google Classroom accounts, many wonderful art projects, Chromebook progress monitoring in reading and math, learning addition & subtraction facts, and participating in Maker Space STEM activities. We will be taking a field trip later on in the year. More information on this trip will come at a later date.
My professional journey in education brought me to the San Jacinto Unified District in 2000. This will be my 21st year teaching Elementary school. Grades taught are K, 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th Leadership Academy, and Adult Ed (CPR/AED/1st Aid Instructor for our District!). This is my eighth year at Megan Cope Elementary. After completing my Bachelor's in Business Administration (1991), I completed my Master's in Education/Teaching Credential in 2003 with a Minor in Psychology. I have three children, my oldest son, Chad, my daughter Jamie, and my son Jesse who recently honorably discharged from the US Army (82nd Airborne)...HOOHAH!
Throughout the year, there may be times when you will need to contact me. You may reach me at before or after school, telephone # (951-654-6069), ClassDojo, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions or comments concerning your child, please do not hesitate to speak with me. I am very open to, and aspire for Parent-Teacher communication. As a Team Member in your child's academic progress, we can help your child have a spectacular year!
