Welcome to the W.E.S. Kindergarten Classroom Page! Here's a little bit about the teachers...

Hello!  Welcome to Kindergarten!  We have been teaching together at WES for 5 years!  We are excited to be using a workshop/team teaching model where we share students and get to know everyone in kindergarten!  We are also trying out a content area model with two of our many subjects...Mrs. Segit is the Kindergarten Science teacher and Miss Flinn is the Kindergarten Writing teacher.  We are strongly committed to supporting our students through multiple hands-on opportunities throughout the day...including guaranteeing a play based choice time for a half an hour each day.  We utilize the Orton Gillingham approach to phonological awareness and have a wealth of experience supporting students with their acquisition of math skills with Cuisenaire rods and numberless cards.  We start each day with a Morning Meeting and follow the principles of Responsive Classroom throughout the day.  Our students are also supported socially and emotionally with a connection to Mindfulness and The Zones of Regulation.  If you have any questions or would like to visit please contact us @ or
