Welcome to Teacher Miss Rachel’s Little Llama Kindergarten! 

This is Rachel’s second year at NCSA and she could not be more overjoyed to be a part of such a wonderful community of parents, educators, and students. Rachel holds a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and a Multiple Subject Teaching credential from William Jessup University. Within the program, she spent time student teaching within Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classes primarily. Before pursuing teaching, she spent four years working at a Girl Scout summer camp in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, including positions such as unit counselor, unit leader, and program director. This ingrained her love of working with children and built within her, a desire to see all children flourish with excitement in a learning environment. In her free time, Rachel continues her work with Girl Scouts, loves to attend and take part in performing arts events, goes to Jazzercise, relaxes with a book by the river, spends time with her family, travels, and frequently goes to coffee with friends.

In Kindergarten we strive to show love and kindness to one another every day. There are 22 students in our class. We start our mornings off with singing, daily gratitudes, and calendar time. Then we work on important language arts and math skills, such as rhyming, letters and their sounds, writing, numbers, and counting. Every day we have outdoor play, storytime, indoor choice time, and practice mindfulness. We have art, movement, and music classes every week.
