Let Me Introduce Myself
Welcome to my kindergarten webpage! My name is Gina Graham, I have been teaching in Amphi since 2000 and have worked with children for over twenty years. Working with students, young and old, has always been my passion. I love watching kindergartners learn, develop, understand and grow into life long learners. I can not imagine having a more fulfilling career!
Defining Moment in Education
I went to school in a very small farming community. I had a wonderful bond with two of my teachers who team taught through 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. I realized that they cared about me academically but more importantly they cared about me as a person and what was going on in my life. I knew at that time in my life that I wanted to be a teacher that students would look back on and confidently know that "I cared."
Core Educational Beliefs
I believe every child has the potential to succeed. I work hard to instill the love of learning in every child. It is important for children to attempt new things with confidence. Children should be excited and look forward to coming to school and learning.
