Transitional Kindergarten Teacher

Mrs. Stephanie Rhoads

I'm so excited to have joined such a neat community! Transitional Kindergarten is a very special gift to our youngest minds, and it is both a pleasure and privilege to be leading you and your children through this journey. Our time together in TK will be spent nurturing your child’s self-esteem, developing social/emotional skills, and building the foundational skills for a successful Kindergarten year. Our goal is to instill a love for learning and positive self-image for every child.

 I grew up in San Diego, but Petaluma is now my home with my husband, Tom, and our very busy, sweet, and curious three year old, Anderson. We love making pancakes together, usually blue pancakes per Anderson’s request, on lazy weekend mornings. I love camping with family and friends, cuddling up for story-time and books every night before bed, and just enjoying life in simple ways.

Special Instructions:

This year we are asking every student to come to school with some basic supplies that they will use in their class. The list is unique for your  

TK student.    

Many stores are having great sales for school supplies right now and, while it is not mandatory that you purchase these items, we hope that you will keep this list handy as you do your back-to-school shopping.

Also, if your family is in the position to purchase a second set for another student in your child’s class, we would very much appreciate your help. 

Thank you!!
