Hello all! I am currently in school for Elementary Education (Kindergarten). I still have quite a way to go, but I am always looking on different sites and I have a few questions. In your welcome letters, have any of you made individual letters? What I mean is, make a template, but put the child's name in their letter to make it more personal? If so, was it too time consuming? Do you ever do a visit with the parents and children before school starts so that you can become familiar with the child or answer any of the parents' questions? What has been the most rewarding thing about teaching Kindergarten? I thought about 1st grade, but I really want to be a part of the most important year in a child's life. Thanks for reading!
