This is my twelth year at Laurel Hill Primary School and I have always been a kindergarten teacher. I love the enthusiasm of new readers and writers as well as the joy of making creative books with children. Painting at the easel is one of my favorite activities but I find joy in many types of art. Our class participates in planting, watering and taking care of a plot in the Meara Garden in the spring.
I am married to Bob Raynor and we are celebrating our 36th anniversary this year in October. Bob and I have two children, Sara and Eliot, and two grandchildren, Sullivan is 4 and Seabrook is 1. Sara and her husband, Zac Painter live in Simpsonville, South Carolina. Our son, Eliot, is working on his PHD. in hispanic linguistics at Indiana University. We are rich in our family life!!
I truly enjoy having parent participation in my classroom and welcome volunteers. Our class enjoys guest readers and parent helpers for guided reading and literacy centers. Welcome to KA!
