Kindergarten Enrichment Program:
My name is Kianna Risner, and I am the lead teacher of the Kindergarten Enrichment Program here at Country Dawn. I am so excited to be such an impactful person in the children’s lives to help them grow and learn. I have always loved teaching and have always had a role in the lives of young children.
Here is a little bit about myself. I graduated from Lake Stevens High School class of 2016. In high school I took many courses in Child Development and Careers in Education. I also was involved in FCCLA and a program called #UWIN, where I went around to many elementary schools in Lake Stevens and taught 1st and 2nd graders the importance of healthy eating and the effects of bullying and cyberbullying. I was constantly working with young kids as well as high school freshmen. After high school I worked full time at two separate jobs that kept me very busy and I pushed school to the side. Before I found this job at Country Dawn, I traveled to Australia for a month and got to experience so many new things and discover more about what I wanted to do in life. I am currently getting myself back into school and am starting to work towards a degree in Early Childhood Education.
In this Kindergarten Enrichment program we will be doing activities every day to work on fine motor skills. The students work with cutting, drawing, gluing, writing and building new skills. We have multiple art projects planned for each week along with games, team building exercises and learning activities. Every Friday we have a movie day. Students can either bring a “G” rated movie from home or one from Country Dawn will be provided. Days where we don’t have school will be spent with multiple recesses, extra art projects and lessons. Please remember when packing lunches that Country Dawn is a Peanut free facility and this year we do have a student with a Tree Nut allergy as well. Here at Country Dawn we value the safety of all our students and ensure that there is always a fun and safe environment.
I cannot wait to experience this year with your child and learn more about myself as I am teaching the children. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to talk to me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
