Welcome to Carnahan HSOF!

* Thank you for sharing your child with me this year.  Being part of your child's life journey is an honor. I look forward to knowing him/her.  Parents/Guardians are the child's first and most important teacher.  I want to support you in that role and ensure that your child my student become a successful productive citizen.  

* As an educator, I promise to prepare your child to excel in the classroom and in their community every day! 

* Let’s establish a great parent and teacher rapport to ensue student growth and academic achievement.  You are always welcome to email, phone, or arrange a visit to the classroom. 

* Your child is incredibly capable especially when they are applying themselves and maximizing their efforts.  I will support your child's independence and provide many different ways and strategies for your child to learn, explore, and excel in the classroom.   

* I am not perfect, but I aim for perfection. I do not expect your children to be perfect, but I will encourage and expect them to aim high and always give their all!
