Welcome to KINDERGARTEN 2020!  My name is Lisa Grossman, and I am excited to start the year with your little ones.

As a mom with two daughters at Trevvett, a rising second grader and a rising fourth grader, I have  experience with elementary life at home and in the classroom. And after a whirlwind Spring and Summer of virtual learning experiences as a teacher and a parent, I have never been more ready for the challenges, excitement, and joys of making learning possible in what seems to be impossible situations. I know that each child is an individual with their own special talents, interests, and skills to share. This year I will make an extra effort highlighting these diversities and creating opportunities for each child to shine and feel loved.

This is going to be an amazing Kindergarten year of firsts! We will blaze a trail and lay the ground work for others to follow. The one thing that has not changed is the expectations remain HIGH in my classroom and your child will work hard; but, rest assured that during this school year, your child will grow and amaze you with the success, achievement, new skills, and knowledge they will achieve. On the other hand, play and discovery are incorporated into everything we do! Play helps our little ones learn to socialize, realize, build relationships, and analyze problems and solutions for deeper learning.

Incorporating STEAM throughout our curriculum will provide time to use the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math your child learns through their curriculum and turn that knowledge into innovative and inventive fun. STEAM will engage students in teamwork and critical thinking. STEAM involves helping the students in the cycle of learning to speak up and ask questions, problem solve with creative thinking, while designing and redesigning ideas, and the production of a final product. Parents are encouraged to join us during our learning and play.
