Teacher Welcome Letters

Pre-Kindergarten

Welcome to PK! We are eager to begin the school year and look forward to supporting our youngest students’ growth as they begin their Stevenson journey. We look forward to meeting your children in person!

Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten! We are eager to begin an amazing year with you and your child. Kindergarten is a year full of exploration and curiosity. Kindergarten learners are full of hope and wonder, and so are we!

Grade 1

Grade 1 students bloom and we are excited to empower and support them to develop their passions, expand their imaginations, and enrich their knowledge and skills using a student-centered approach that is researched-based, multi-sensory, and inquiry-driven.

Grade 2

We are excited to meet you all and begin our year together in Grade 2. We hope you all have had some time to spend as a family this summer learning a new skill, adventuring out into nature, reading books, or setting new goals. Students will have so much fun making new friends and learning something new every day during our expedition together

Grade 3

Welcome to grade 3! We are excited to meet you and your child and begin our year full of learning and discovery! Our dynamic, robust, and engaging curriculum includes literacy, writing skills, cursive letter formations, mathematics (with a focus on multiplication and division), STEM, social studies, art, music, dance, physical education, Spanish, and social-emotional skills.

Grade 4

We are very excited to begin this school year and we are eager to get to know each of you. Grade 4 is filled with tremendous amounts of learning, exploration, and fun! We look forward to partnering with you and leading you through the many adventures that await us this year.

Lower Division PE

As we gear up for another academic journey, I am thrilled to share that I am entering my seventh year as the Physical Education teacher for the Lower Division here at Stevenson School.

Lower Division Dance

In lower-division dance classes, students will learn developmentally and age-appropriate movements and work on physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development in an inclusive and encouraging classroom environment where everybody is welcome as a dancer.

Lower Division Spanish

In Lower Division Spanish we will learn through songs, books, stories, games. I intend to challenge you as much as possible in order to make the best of their Spanish class time, while always considering the individualities of each student.
