    Welcome to Kindergarten!      
    As your child begins kindergarten, I would like to welcome you to Monteith and tell you a little bit about myself.  

              I have taught in the Grosse Pointe school district for 18 years, and this is my 15th year in Kindergarten at Monteith.  I have subbed in all grade levels PreK to 6, student taught in first grade at Trombly, and taught fifth grade at Kerby and Ferry.   I have a B.A. in English from Wayne State and a Masters in Reading and Literacy from Walden University.  I have 6 years of preschool experience at my own three children’s (now adults!) co-op preschool, and I have tutored children with reading difficulties. My own children had an excellent education in Grosse Pointe Public Schools..


              I want to make your child’s learning experience a rich and enjoyable one. Our goal together as parent and teacher is to motivate, spur curiosity, enhance enthusiasm and to teach the child how to be a successful learner.  My classroom management style is warm but structured, and I hope that you might be able to assist me in the classroom some time. 


    I welcome all comments and questions, so please feel free to contact me by email at richard@gpschools.org, note, or phone (voice mail is 432-5407) with any questions.  I am looking forward to a great year!
