I am thrilled to be one of your child's kindergarten teachers. My name is Mrs. M./Mme. M (simplified from Mrs/Mme Morin) and I am very excited to be working with you and your child. I have been at St. James for many wonderful years and know many of you and your children, but look forward to continuing to do so, as well as meeting those of you whom I have not yet met with.
When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my family, including my three children (a son and two daughters) and am outdoors as often as possible. I love a good latte, especially when paired with a great book. My favorite movie is Anne of Green Gables, and I love jazz, classical and Christian music. I could eat yogourt and avocados multiple times a day (but not together), and I love the colours purple and turquoise (these go very well together). My dream job since I was little, was teaching kindergarten. And here I am.
I cannot imagine doing anything other than what I do, and I truly believe that kindergarten is an amazing, and magical place to be. To be able to experience all of the excitements of discovery and new learning with these wonderful little people, is a true joy for me. I am so pleased to be able to teach with Mrs. Qureshi again this year. Mrs. Buckley (Mrs. B), Mrs. Fitzel and Mrs. Lopez will also be members of our teaching team this year, in varying roles. I will now be delivering only the French program to your child as we have a 4th kinder class. I am thrilled to be able to work with Ms. Kelleher (Ms. K) as my English partner.
I believe that each child has an innate sense of curiosity and wonder and is capable of directing their learning through the environment of a kindergarten classroom, where educators are fully engaged, and involved and excited about the learning journey that each child is taking. That is my role. I am honoured to play and learn with your children and to help them by presenting challenges and opportunities to discover the world around them so that they learn how to think and to show what they think. I also have the opportunity to help them explore this in a new language, which is so much fun!
Since we are all working toward the same goal, it is important for us to communicate often. Please feel free to write a note in your child's communication book or contact me by phone at school 613-599-6600 if you have any questions or concerns.
Together we can make this a great experience for your child! Thank you so much in advance for your support!
Au plaisir de vous rencontrer tous et toutes. I look forward to working with you and to getting to know your children better.
