Mrs. Shannon Flanders
Welcome to Kindergarten!
I believe in helping children develop a lifelong love of learning and a passion for reading, exploring, and questioning.
In our classroom:
* We learn through play and hands- on exploration
* We work together to create a community of learners
* We develop the social and academic skills to make us successful learners
I am a mom, wife, avid camper, hiker, and traveler. I love to read, cook, and try new things. Some of my favorite things are coffee, tacos, Sharpie markers, and going to concerts, games, and plays.
Kindergarten is my jam! I love working and learning with this age group, and watching the light bulbs of understanding go off over young heads. In Kindergarten, we build our academic and social skills by focusing on patience, flexibility, empathy, kindness, and friendship. I am grateful to be a part of your educational experience at Mallinckrodt, and look forward to working with you as a partner in education.
Please contact me via email, Class Dojo, or Microsoft Teams.
I am excited to dive into this brave new world of learning- it promises to be an adventure!
