Ms. Emily Hockaday
Hello everyone my name is Ms. Emily Hockaday.
I am going to be your kindergarten teacher this school year.
I hope everyone enjoyed their summer and is ready to have fun learning.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a graduate of Harris-Stowe State University.
This is my fourth year teaching kindergarten at Wilkinson Early Childhood Center.
I have three children one girl and two boys. I have two grandchildren both are girls, and one who attends Wilkinson Early Childhood Center with me.
I have a dog named Tookie, I love the theatre, my favorite color is red and my favorite ice cream is Rocky Road yum! yum!
I love having fun while learning. In our classroom we will have a lot of fun learning, we will make volcanos and indoor snow just to name a few.
In the past my classes have written Readers Theatre titled Harriett Tubman Goes On Trial, we put on the 17 Stars Paper Bag Fashion Show, we made a commerical about Antarctia and built our own set (along with room 206). Most recently, the students of Wilkinson and I wrote and published LeBron James Black History in Children's Words.
I enjoy teaching kindergarten because I like seeing the children grow.
In my spare time I like listening to Mozart, watching old movies, reading and writing.
I can't wait to see everyone in person so we can have fun learning new and exciting things.
See you soon!
