Hello My Name Is...

Hi! My name is Ms. Sims, and I am the newest member of the kindergarten team here at Whitesboro. This is my first year teaching, and I am extremely excited to be starting my life's dream. Since my favorite thing to do is read to young listeners and some of my students have not yet discovered the love of books, this year I want to bring life to the characters of their favorite stories and instill in them a love for reading.

I am blessed to be a part of a school that is known for high expectations for students, incredible teacher commitment, and tremendous parent support.

Although our school is a small rural learning institute, it is a privilege to be a part of a community dedicated to providing a caring, nurturing environment where all students are encouraged to become successful members of our community. In my classroom, students all have unique voices that I encourage them to use. I love that they are involved in creating our classroom community. I know that these little minds are building not only knowledge but trust as well. This takes time and the rapport must be nurtured. My students know that I care about them because no one leaves my room without a hug, and, to be honest, most days I don't know who is in more need of it, them or me. Taking the time to know my students well, not just as learners, but also as people has helped to create a real sense of belonging in our shared space. This is the “magic” that helps learning explode.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout this school year.
