Dear Kindergarten Families,
My name is Mrs. Cheney and I am SO excited to be your child’s teacher this year! It is going to be a “Suess-tastic” year full of learning, fun, and wild and whimsical adventures in our imaginations! I can’t wait to meet each of you and learn ALL about you but until then, here are a few things for you to get to know me.
I was born and raised in Arlington, VA and attended St. Thomas More School followed by O’Connell. I earned a bachelor’s degree in English at George Mason University and then earned my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Teacher’s College, Columbia University and I have been teaching ever since!
I have taught fourth grade, third grade, kindergarten, and preschool and am DELIGHTED to have found my home in my favorite grade! There is nothing as joyful as the days spent in a kindergarten classroom! I also love that I know exactly where you are coming from and where you need to be and I can’t wait to challenge you and see “the thinks you can think!”
You will often see me smiling in the halls at two very special boys, Kylan and Bryson, who are my very own “Thing 1 and Thing 2” (my children). It is such a blessing to teach and learn next to my children in such a wonderful school community. And, just in case you haven’t guessed, our class theme this year is Dr. Seuss!
I know this year will be special, magical and full of learning and growth! I am thrilled to be a part of your kindergarten experience!
Hugs and love, Mrs. Cheney
