all about me...
Welcome to Kindergarten on MCPSonline! I am so happy to meet you! My name is Rachel Williams, and this is my 13th year of teaching. My teaching experience includes 5th, 3rd, and now Kindergarten. In my opinion, this first year of school is one of the most special. What I enjoy most about my job is the relationships I build with students. In Kindergarten, we enter the year as strangers and leave as family! Our online classroom is a safe place for every child to feel-loved, nurtured, and encouraged along their academic and social journey. I feel blessed to be a part of this foundational year for your child’s education. I hope to be partners with you this year in providing the best developmental experience for their first year in school!
my favorite things…
Drink: Diet Coke & Unsweet Iced Tea
Food: Any kind of Cheese
Book: The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
Fast Food: Chick-fil-a
Candy: Any kind of chocolate
my educational philosophy...
I believe that a classroom, whether in-person or online, should be a safe, caring community where children feel free to speak their minds and grow. I aim to bring an open mind, a positive attitude, and high expectations to the classroom each day. I believe that I owe it to my students, as well as the community, to bring consistency, diligences, and warmth to my job in the hope that I can ultimately inspire and encourage such traits in the children as well.
