Welcome to first grade! My name is Nicole Kaiser and I will be your child’s teacher this year! I am very excited to have your child in my class and can’t wait to begin our school year. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child throughout this year. I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and share some information. In addition to this letter, I will be sending out a short “meet the teacher” video for you to share with your child.
I grew up in Saratoga, California and have lived in the Bay Area my entire life, except for four years when I lived in Tucson, Arizona. Tucson was a wonderful place to live, but I am happy to be back in the Bay Area and away from the extreme heat.
I have spent the last 10 years working with children in a variety of educational, early literacy and childcare settings. I received my bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Arizona, and I received my master’s degree in Teaching from Santa Clara University. I worked at an elementary school in Los Altos, California where I worked in both first and fourth grade. At the end of the school year I taught the students online due to COVID-19.
Working with children has always been a passion of mine and I feel blessed to be your child’s teacher this year. Even though this year will be different than previous years, I know that we are still going to learn so many new things and we will have a great time together. I believe that children learn best through hands-on experiences and exploring new ideas, so I will always try to incorporate engaging activities into our daily learning. I consider myself to be a life-long learner and hope to instill a love of learning in your child throughout the year. I believe that there is always something new to learn and I love to explore new concepts and ideas.
