Welcome to Kindergarten!Hello! My name is Mayumi Kearns and I am your kindergarten teacher this year. I am originally from California, and live in Arlington with my husband and 8-year old daughter.
I have been an Early Childhood educator since 2004. My goal each year is to create a healthy learning community where every child has motivation for learning and to grow together as a community. In my free time I enjoy running, reading, and spending time with my daughter.
Mrs. Chamberlain, our wonderful kindergarten assistant, joins us four times a week. She assists in the classroom, facilitates small groups of children during our activity time and supervises recess and lunch periods. I feel very fortunate for her assistance in making this coming kindergarten year a successful one and we are both very happy to be a part of your child's kindergarten experience.Each day your child will bring home his/her red communication folder. I will use it to send home newsletters and school notices and encourage you to send me notes in this folder as well. It is the best way to get in touch with me. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner, usually within 24 hours. For urgent needs, please call the school (781-861-2500) and leave a message with the main office staff.Thank you for helping your child. I look forward to working with you and your family this year.Best,Mayumi Kearns
