    Dear Parents,

    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Jeannette McCarley. I am going to be your son/daughter's kindergarten teacher at Higley Traditional Academy. I am originaly from Ohio but have lived in Gilbert for the past 11 years. I have 5 children with my fiance Josh.  We are a blended family of 3 boys and 2 girls who all attend Gateway Pointe Elementary.  I graduated from Lake Erie College with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have a masters degree in Business Administration from University of Phoenix.  This is my 13th year of teaching! In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, shopping (yes I love my shoes), and swimming with my family. 

    The kindergarten year is very important for a child's social, emotional, and academic growth. My goal is to create a community of kindergartners where they can learn, grow, and play.

    I am delighted to be a part of your child's kindergarten year, and I am dedicated to making this a positive and productive experience for all my students and their families. I believe that all children are unique and special in their own way. My mission as a teacher is to enhance each child's strengths by treating him/her as an individual who deserves respect, compassion, and a safe, secure place in which to learn.

    Parent/teacher communication is essential. I believe we have to have a partnership in your child's education. I am here for you and your child. If I ever have questions or concerns I will contact you as quickly as I can. I ask that you do the same for me. You will find me to be dedicated, enthusiastic, warm, loving, and honest. Together, we can make kindergarten a wonderful experience for your child!
