We have concluded the process for selecting a new teacher for the AM-Kindergarten classroom.  As many know, Jenny Derry is taking a new position at Hopkins in the Title I Program teaching math interventions.  Mrs. Sarah Thomas was selected to take over Room 8 for the rest of the school year.  Sarah was part of a very strong trio of finalists, out of an applicant pool of 57 certified teachers.  Our kindergarten team, Instructional Coach Chrissy Lawrence and I are very pleased to welcome someone familiar with Edy Ridge and our kindergarten program.

Here at Edy Ridge, Sarah Thomas has been our regular afternoon kindergarten substitute in Room 8 on all early release days since we opened in 2009.  Sarah has been on the short-list of teachers that the Edy Ridge staff use for subbing in all of the grade levels.  As well as being known among the staff, Sarah is familiar with many of our kindergarten routines, procedures, curriculum, strategies, schedules, etc.  Jenny and Sarah will double-up in the classroom next week for two days to help with the transition.  On Thursday, January 17, Sarah will be available from 2:30-3:30 p.m. to meet Room 8 families and to get acquainted with anyone who wants to stop by.
